Felix Baumgartner’s Jump From Outer Space [Video]
If you have not heard about this yet on the Internet or from your friends, Felix Baumgartner is the man you should be hearing or reading about. He took a monstrous jump from 128,100 feet above Earth… and it was a success.
Felix thought it would be good press to fly to the edge of space in a helium-fueled weather balloon and then jump out, breaking the speed of sound on his way back down to earth. Not only did he land safely, he did it on his feet. Watch video of his record-breaking jump. You can see that he did this landing on his feet as well, reaching over 700 MPH.
And if the real thing is NOT what you are looking for, here’s the Lego version of the jump. Almost as cool!
