Felix Baumgarner Sky Dives From Space!
Felix and Red Bull teamed up to send him up 128,100 FEET above New Mexico in a small capsule. That's 24 MILES high, and clearly put him IN SPACE. The previous world record was 102,800 feet, which was set in 1960.
During Felix's freefall, he maxed out at 833.9 miles-per-hour, which was enough to BREAK THE SOUND BARRIER. The speed of sound is 761.207 miles-per-hour. Felix's speed is also a world record. No skydiver had broken the sound barrier before.
It took Felix about 10 minutes to make it down to Earth. That included four minutes and 20 seconds of freefall and over five minutes after he pulled his parachute. He landed safely on two feet.
