As I’m sure everyone knows by now, yesterday Felix Baumgartner was finally able to make his long-planned jump from the edge of space. When he exited his tiny capsule, he was actually above 128,000 feet (39,014 meters) and during free fall he managed to hit speeds of over 725 mph (1166 kph). For those of us who watched it live, it was quite an amazing spectacle, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who had to remind himself to breathe ever once in awhile. In case you missed it however, the YouTube video below will help you catch-up on all the action. It was definitely something to witness, and looks just as great even when it isn’t live.
Congratulations to Felix and the entire Red Bull Stratos team on a job well done. Amazing accomplishment!
