Felix Baumgartner’s super sonic free fall from the edge of space

Felix Baumgartner becomes the first man to dive from the edge of the space after flying 39,045 meters above the Earth into Stratosphere, in a helium filled balloon. During this fall Felix achieved maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h (833mph) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long free fall.

The 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert also broke two other world records (highest free-fall, highest manned balloon flight). Here is the video of it from RedBull’s YouTube channel.
