Video: Felix Baumgartner space dive. Breaks sound barrier

Felix Baumgartner
At first, when i heard about this sky diving feat to be attained by Felix Baumgartner, i thought it was the normal Red Bull ad things na but for real this guy jumped from space.

Felix Baumgartner is an extreme skydiver who hails from Australia. Yesterday, he was shuttled to space in order to jump from a height of 128,000ft. According to him, he wanted to give up almost twice. The first time was when he realized that his visor was becoming too foggy because of the coolness of his breath and the the second time was when he also realized he was too unstable in mid air to survive the feat of which the only option was to push a button that would help stabilize and normalize his fall due to gravity. This unstable condition almost killed Mr Joseph Kittinger, an American, 50 years back during his sky dive.
 Well, i guess he was not ready to give up at least not yet. Eventually, he broke the record of hitting land faster than the speed of sound without the use of a vehicle.This dude now holds a record of the first skydiver to hit land faster than the speed of sound.

The feat lasted for 4mins and 19secs at an estimated speed of 1,342km. I also think his accompanied oxygen was for 10mins.
“It was harder than I expected,” Mr. Baumgartner said after the historic jump. “Trust me, when you stand up there on top of the world, you become so humble. It’s not about breaking records any more. It’s not about getting scientific data. It’s all about coming home.”
