Felix Baumgartner: The First ODST

Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner jumped from the edge of space.
Let me repeat: HE JUMPED FROM THE EDGE OF SPACE.

Amazing.

He hit 833.9 MPH during freefall (breaking the sound barrier).
He was in freefall for 119,864 feet.
His total skydive was 128,100 feet.

The jump was sponsored by Red Bull, which does apparently actually give you wings.
If you missed it, here’s the video of the fall.
