Jumped From Space, Landed on His Feet14 Oct 2012 No Comments
Felix Baumgartner just jumped from 128,097ft breaking the previous world record of 102,800ft held by Joseph Kittinger set in 1960.
Baumgartner also managed to be the first parachutist to break the sound barrier during his free-fall, reaching a top speed of 725mph. He didn’t manage to get the record for the longest free-fall though, as it is still held by Kittinger (4 mins 36 seconds). Baumgartner pulled the cord for his chute 4 mins 19 seconds after stepping off from his capsule.
