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!
