Full Video of the Supersonic Space Jump Is Astonishing


He did it! That crazy awesome Felix Baumgartner jumped off the edge of the space, from 127,000 feet of altitude all the way back down to Earth, breaking some world records and getting vital information for NASA in the process. Watch as he jumps out of the capsule. It’s a frightening, adrenaline-fueled, historic moment.

Update: It’s official, Felix is now the first man on the planet to break the speed of sound with no mechanical propulsion—just him and Earth’s gravity. Talking at the post-jump press conference, he told everyone about the moment in which he exceeded Mach 1. It got scary.
