In a giant leap from more than 24 miles up, a daredevil skydiver shattered the sound barrier Sunday while making the highest jump ever — a tumbling, death-defying plunge from a balloon to a safe landing in the New Mexico desert. Baumgartner hit Mach 1.24, or 833.9 mph, according to preliminary data, and became the first person to reach supersonic speed without traveling in a jet or a spacecraft after hopping out of a capsule that had reached an altitude of 128,100 feet above the Earth.
Dude this blows my mind. The dude jumped from 24 miles above earth and landed on his feet in New Mexico. Seriously – W…T…F! I think Space Mountain at Disney World is aggressive and this dude is falling at over 800 mph. Fuggin’ Felix Baumgartner man. My new hero.
