Beyond the Frigid Void: Per Wimmer's Adventures in the Shadows of the Known

Los Angeles CA (SPX) Oct 14, 2023

Imagine, if you dare, a realm where temperatures dive to an unearthly 55 degrees below Celsius. A place where every breath feels like a thousand icy needles, and the vast expanse of Earth seems an eerie, distant mirage. Few souls dare to venture here, but for one man, it's just another thrilling chapter in his tapestry of adventures...

Brad Bartz of Spacedaily.com sat down with the fearless Per Wimmer, a man whose escapades have taken him from the chilling depths of the stratosphere to the mysteries of the Amazon.

In the heart of the jungle, Wimmer sought wisdom from a medicine man, unraveling the enigmas of nature. But danger lurked even in the tranquil waters, where piranhas, with their razor-sharp teeth, awaited their next meal. Yet, for Wimmer, it was an opportunity, not a threat.

Brad: "You'll be descending from an altitude of 80,000 feet. I wanted to ask, is the parachute designed differently for such a height? Given the elevation, wouldn't the engineering of the parachute be particularly challenging?

Per: " Absolutely. That's one part of it to be honest. There's a lot of engineering but one thing if you're jumping from that high and doing a so-called Halo jump, you must have a parachute that's triple XL. So, when you come from that high up. You will pick up a lot more speed and if you jump with a normal parachute. It was quite a high chance you might actually break your legs when you land because you just come in too hard, too hard. So you're right to ask the question. You need an extra large parachute effectively to break more, there's less air there, hence also why you need the oxygen mask.

He continued, "Anyways, we had wind when we jumped out, we had a 60 second freefall. Which is quite long when you're free of holding, you know and when you're doing it above Everest and Ama Dablan all the other tall peaks there. I mean, my God, it's gorgeous. You take a little bit of risk, whatever you're comfortable with, but the reward will then come. And in this case, the reward with this amazing, gorgeous landscape with Himalayas all around me. I mean, it was just unbelievable. And yet I was falling at terminal velocity of 170 kilometers an hour just racing down there. But it was gorgeous and incredible."

From the dense Amazonian wilderness, Wimmer then embarked on an ethereal journey to experience the weightlessness of zero gravity, floating like a specter in a realm untethered by the laws of Earth.

Brad: "From the icy void to the heart of the jungle, and now to space. What drives you?"

Per: "It's the thrill, the unknown, and the endless possibilities that await."

And as he prepares for his next great adventure - a journey into the vastness of space - Wimmer reflects on the principles that guide him. The Seven Values of Wimmer:

  1. Think out of the box: Allow Yourself To Be inspired.
  2. Follow your heart and passion: Have purpose. Have fun. Be Authentic.
  3. Focus and execution
  4. Time discipline: Be Conscious About Time Allocation.
  5. Teamwork: The Sum Of The Parts Is Greater Than The Individual Parts Alone.
  6. Take calculated risks: Assess The Risks-Rewards Ratio. Apply Sustainable Solutions Respecting The Environment & Scarce Resources
  7. Inspire others: Especially Children, And Encourage Them To Live Out Their Dreams

For those daring enough to dream, Wimmer's tales are a beacon, illuminating the path. In a universe teeming with mysteries, his message is clear: Go for it, chase the unknown, and remember to share the wonders you discover.
