The lecture is about the the “Stratos Project” and the challenge coins produced during the phases of the project. the Stratos Project was an endeavor by a company called Sage/Cheshire and sponsored by the Red Bull energy drink corporation to break the world record for highest freefall parachute jump. Sage/Cheshire produced a set of challenge coins for each test jump and when I was presented one, as a gift, I developed this lecture with photos about previous records, attempts, and mishaps from information that is subtly noted on the coins. I currently own 3 of the 4 coins that were produced along with photographic images of the 4th. A short video of the record setting jump is also included.
