Red Bull Stratos: Felix Baumgartner's Jump

Felix Baumgartner’s jump from the stratosphere at 128,100 feet (24 miles) above this lovely planet broke not only the world record for the highest-ever jump from a manned balloon, but he may have also been the first person to break the sound barrier. Eight million people gathered around their computers to watch the 4 minute and 20 second free-fall live streamed on YouTube, which broke some sort of YouTube record as well.Photo by Twin Cessna
