Felix has a new mission - level 2

06-12-2013 14:00

Felix is a famous daredevil. He made history last year when he jumped from a capsule which was 24 miles (39 kilometres) above the ground.

He broke the sound barrier and set a new world record. Before the jump, he could see the curve of the Earth. When he looked up, the sky above him was completely black.

Felix has told media about his new mission recently. It is not as exciting as the 24-mile jump, but there is still some action. Felix is learning how to fly a helicopter. He wants be a firefighter and a mountain rescue pilot.

Difficult words: daredevil (person who does dangerous things), capsule (part of a spacecraft for people), curve (line that bends like part of a circle).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
