Highest Skyjump Ever!

By on October 15, 2012

So Felix Baumgartner has earned his place in history after he became the first man to break the speed of sound in a freefall from an altitude of 128,100 feet! That’s just at the edge of space!!!!! Watch here:

Having flown to 128,100 feet (39,045 meters) in a helium-filled balloon yesterday, 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert then freefell back to earth, hitting a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere during his 4:20 minute long jump.

At one point Baumgartner appeared to spin rapidly, but he quickly re-gained control and moments later opened his parachute to the relief of his ground crew and about 7 million viewers worldwide.

Landing safely with his safely with his parachute in the desert of New Mexico, Baumgartner broke the record exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane.

He also broke two other world records: highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight.
