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!

Most kids want to be firemen or a movie star.
Felix Baumgartner has had a strange childhood dream - he wants to be the first human being to break the speed of sound.
And the scary thing is that his dream may soon become a reality.
A tentative date has been scheduled for the 8th of October where Baumgartner will start a dive from 120,000 feet above land which would be the highest altitude from which a skydive had begun.
God speed, sir.
Ch-ch-check out the amazing video (above) !!!

Tensions were high when a U.S. Army skydiver experienced parachute problems at
Rangers Ballpark stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The skydiver's parachute got tangled on a flagpole, but luckily he was able to get himself loose and land on top of the scoreboard, which is the highest point in the entire stadium! Wow.
VERY Impressive maneuver.
We're glad he's all right!
