Falling To Earth... What a rush! ~ Historical Space Jump New Video

GoPro Releases Baumgartner’s Historical Space Jump’s New Video
Submitted by Annika Linser
Felix Baumgartner became the first person in the world to break the speed of sound during his record-setting descent. GoPro, the firm which has provided the cameras attached to the daredevils, has released a new footage of Baumgartner's space jump.
The terrifying new video shows what Baumgartner has gone through during the jump and especially the time when the out of control of spin had almost cost him his life. He has jumped from his balloon 24.5 miles above the Earth and has reached speeds of up to 834 mph before his parachute opened.
Everything went well and 'Fearless Felix' was on the ground after five minutes. By safely reaching on the solid ground, Felix became the first person to complete the highest and fastest skydive in the history.
There are a number of things that happened during the event and hence, making it a historical one. Felix has made records for the highest balloon ascent and even the highest parachute jump.
From a tiny capsule that took Felix up to the edge of space, he attempted the jump. After attempting many high jumps, Felix does not believe that the jumps are no more about breaking records. It is only about coming back alive.
