This is a coloured photograph of Felix Baumgartner after his parachute opened and terminal velocity has been reached again. An arrow upwards from the Earth's surface indicates that the forces of gravity and air resistance are in balance. A downwards arrow indicates that Baumgartner is neither accelerating or slowing down, his speed is constant.
