Baumgartner first freefalling man breaking soundbarrier!


Watched by millions on the planet live over the Internet, Austrian Felix Baumgartner broke three world records.

  1. Highest manned balloon flight ever
  2. Highest parachute jump ever
  3. Fastest free falling man ever, breaking the sound barrier!

Just some slight problems with the heating of Baumgartners visor which were minor and the mission went as planned, succeeding on all fronts.

This jump is more than just an adventures endeavour, it provides valuable data for future spaceflights in case of emergency bailout. Baumgartner landed savely on his parachute greeted by helicopters and groundpersonell.
