Felix Baumgartner Red Bull Stratos Live Jump Screenshots

Did you miss Felix Baumgartner live jump which ended just an hour ago on youtube.com/redbull?

There should be a replay right after the live press conference but in the mean time, here's a quick update for those of you who missed out, or fell asleep on the other side of the earth while waiting for the ascent.

Yes I've sat through the 3 hours from launch till he touched the ground.

They had to capture him using infra-red camera. He was dropping so fast in vacuum it was difficult for camera to capture his shadow!

Felix Baumgartner 8 million live views on youtube
The peak of Youtube live views: 8 million views! WOW! A record!
And he dispatched his parachute. Did not break longest free fall time record that Kittinger set - 4 min 36 sec. Felix Baumgartner did it in 4 min 19 sec.

Well done Felix Baumgartner, who achieved a jump at more than 127,000 feet, and became the first human to break the sound barrier (faster than the speed of sound) at the speed of 706 mph (or 1136 kph).

And well done Red Bull for making this 5 year project Red Bull Stratos happened.


History has been made.
