I don’t know how many of you ever watched this “live”, but Felix Baumgartner’s jump to Earth from 128,000ft (24 miles!) was truly amazing. The above clip is a highly edited version. If you have a little more time, here’s another high def clip that gives a little more detail and background to the story.
There’s also lot’s of interviews with Felix after the jump, here’s one such example. He really is a pretty humble guy. This comment on the interview video linked sums it up…
“I think what’s most impressive is that he looks as cool as a person who would do this should.”
This is a playlist I made of the 21 best videos related to The Stratosphere Jump by Felix Baumgartner. The first is a CGI animation of how it was in ‘concept’… after that are (in order) the best videos on the internet of his historic jump. The second is absolutly amazing. After that are different video’s some HD some different cameras. The full live broadcast & the press conference. There is just something extra special about what these people accomplished; and these videos are absolutely worth checking out. Enjoy!
