GoPro Releases Amazing Footage of the Red Bull Stratos Jump
On October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner set the record for the highest manned ballon ascent, at the same time the Austrian skydiver would attempt to set the record for the highest parachute jump.
Baumgartner was guided by a veteran US Air Force parachutist Joseph Kittinger, who 52 years earlier had set the records that Mr. Baumgartner was now in the process of breaking, Baumgartner checked to make sure that the five GoPro cameras strapped to his pressure suit were on, disconnected his oxygen hose, undid his seat belt and helmet tie-down strap, and stepped gently away from the capsule, dropping head first into the awaiting stratosphere.
Baumgartner had reached a top speed of 843.6 miles per hour, becoming the first human to break the sound barrier without assistance from a jet engine.
The following 8 minute video shows that the sky is definitely not the limit for those who dream beyond, enjoy:
