He Did It! Skydiver Felix Baumgartner Successfully Free-Falls From The Edge Of Space!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueZportzInspiration

History has been MADE, folks!

After his initial attempt Tuesday was ruined to adverse weather conditions, skydiver Felix Baumgartner has officially become the first person to successfully free fall from "the edge of space," having jumped out of a balloon 128,000 feet above New Mexico…AKA 24 miles up into the atmosphere!

Wearing just a space suit and only relying on his parachute for the final few thousand feet, the Austrian daredevil's journey back down to Earth lasted less than ten minutes!

And his MOTHER was even watching from Mission Control!

Ch-ch-check it all out for yourself (above)!

AH-mazing!

No word yet on if he also managed to successfully achieve his goal of breaking the sound barrier, but we're sure we'll have the official results from the Federation Aeronautique Internationale any time now!

Either way, such an INCREDIBLE accomplishment, and we couldn't be more thrilled that he is safely back on Earth after such an incredible feat!

All the more reason we encourage EVERYONE out there to dare to dream!

There is still so much out there to explore and accomplish!

    Who gives a crap? Wow you fell out of something from really high and kept falling for a while. Oh, and you're in a spacesuit. What a total waste of money and time. You want to really impress me? Get shot out of a cannon to that height then come back down. Good job falling off your little platform and not getting stuck on anything. Or clipping a plane or a bird. Congrats. You're right up there with Sir Edmund Hillary.

    If anyone has a brain, THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE , a long time ago by a guy named Joseph Kittinger on Nov. 16 1969. Moron.

    Re: ALready Done Before – That's why Joseph Kittlinger was Felix Baumgartner's mentor and why Kittlinger's world record was broken by Baumgartner.

    Re: teeter totter
    I never understood why people get so upset about something as trivial as typing in all caps. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, BITCH, IF ALL CAPS OFFENDS YOU, PERHAPS YOU SHOULD STAY OFF THE INTERNET.

    I always thought you died or passed out going a certain speed.. such as dropping off a building. makes me feel awful knowing people that jumped out of buildings lived all the way until they hit the ground :(

    just so you guys know, felix didn't break all of kittingers records due to respect to kittinger. and if all human beings were thinking like you guys, there would be no science and no revolution in whatever way. oh and I'd like to see one of you standing on that platform and NOT shitting himself. oh sorry.. we'll never see that because you apparently have no dreams and hide in your bedrooms so you can't even see what the world (and obviously space) has to offer.

    Re: anna.
    That's such a nice sentiment, Anna, but stop being so pompous. You know nothing about the people commenting, and people can have big dreams without one of them having to do with jumping from great heights.

    Re: teeter totter – Too bad Red Bull doesn't sponsor someone like David Blaine who works hard and can draw huge crowds.
