You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who didn't know about Felix Baumgartner's 24 mile supersonic skydive this weekend. Everyone was talking about it (but not talking about how lame it is that Redbull had their logo plastered all over such a crazy occasion), and everyone held their breath as he jumped.
We all had to wait 4 minutes and 20 seconds for his freefall to complete before we had any indication that he'd be landing safely.
Amazingly, during that almost-five-minutes, Felix was at one point traveling at 833 mph or Mach 1.24, and he shattered the speed of sound.
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!
