People around the world were thrilled by Felix Baumgartner‘s space jump this week. We watched in awe as he set a new record for skydiving, launching himself from the stratosphere and landing safely in New Mexico. His actions have already inspired some follow-up, such as the world’s shortest freefall. Best of all, his entire sound barrier-breaking journey was well-documented — everything from his pre-launch preparation to the the footage from his suit was captured on film.
We can’t all jump from a hot air balloon above the desert, but we can take a cue from Felix by setting amazing things in motion. That’s why for this week’s Photo Challenge, we want you to send us an image that represents momentum. It doesn’t have to be a man falling from the sky (as awesome as that was). We want to see your best depiction of an object, a person or even an idea picking up speed.
Send us your fastest-moving, adrenaline-packed photos, and we’ll pick our favorites to showcase in our gallery. Feel free to interpret the challenge in whatever creative ways you can. Good luck!
