Remember Felix Baumgartner, the Austrian skydiver, daredevil and BASE jumper who bested Jo Kittinger’s 1960 world record parachute jump of 19.5 miles by falling from a height of 24 miles, reaching a maximum velocity of Mach 1.25 [or 843.6 mph to you and me ]? Well Red Bull have just released new footage of the jump and it’s pretty awesome. Shot in HD using GoPro’s HERO 2 cameras so sit back and enjoy the full view of his fall from space.
In case you missed 2012 you can read about the Red Bull Stratos project here.
