You may not have heard of Felix Baumgartner before last week, but the Austrian pilot and world-record holding BASE jumper has a new world record after this weekend. With the help of a stratospheric balloon, Baumgartner ascended more than 128,000 feet above the ground to make a freefall jump to earth, breaking the speed of sound during freefall.
Check out the videos showing the preparation for his jump and the highlights. You won’t want to miss the amazing views!
>> Did you watch the freefall? What did you think of mission?
