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. And now you can watch it from his point of view—and several others. Fair warning: it's still nerve-wracking. It feels like he's going… » 10/14/13 5:13pm 10/14/13 5:13pm

Fearless Felix Supersonic Space Jump Still Awesome One Year Later

Today is the anniversary of brave Felix Baumgartner's space jump. His heart was racing at 185 beats per minute when he jumped from an altitude of 127,852 feet, then started to spin at 60 revolutions per minute and kept spinning for 13 seconds after jumping, reaching a maximum vertical speed of Mach 1.25. An incredible … » 10/14/13 1:17am 10/14/13 1:17am

Fearless Felix Not So Fearless, Went Faster Than We Thought

It turns out that supersonic man Felix Baumgartner was even more supersonic than we previously thought. He actually reached 843.6 miles per hour (1,357.6 km/h), which is 1.25 the speed of sound. His heart rate was extremely high at the exact time of the jump—understandably! » 2/04/13 3:01pm 2/04/13 3:01pm

The Navy Once Blasted Pilots in the Face To Test Human Limits

Long before Felix Baumgartner completed his crazy 24-mile free fall from the edge of space, the Navy was testing how humans react to pushing their bodies beyond normal limits. In 1948 that meant blasting volunteer pilots in the face with winds of above 305 miles per hour to see if they could handle it. » 10/17/12 12:40pm 10/17/12 12:40pm

Supersonic Space Jump: Full Coverage

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
