Watch Felix Baumgartner's Space Jump from Every Angle Imaginable

It's been just over a year since the nail-biter of a day when Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a shimmering weather balloon 127,852 feet in the air and reached a top speed of Mach 1.25.

Total success. After many delays, Felix did it. He reached the highest altitude ever reached by any man in a balloon, more than 127,000 feet. He then jumped and fell faster than any man, breaking Mach 1 (it's unofficial for now, they have to confirm it). » 10/14/12 3:58am 10/14/12 3:58am
