Incase Your Missed: Watch Felix Baumgartner Jump From 120,000 Feet

Just spectacular is how I can describe the skydiving adventure the whole world go to see today. Felix Baumgartner broke many records as he climbed for more than two hours in a small capsule with nothing more than a seat and some instruments attached to a very large balloon. They were unsure if he would be able to jump due to a problem with his faceshield not heating, but they were able to fix it. After a long wait, Felix stepped out onto the single step of his capsule and let his body fall down to earth. He passed through conditions as cold as -90 degrees Fahrenheit during his drop that reached speeds close to 800 mph. In case you got bored during the ascent and missed the actual drop, here’s a video.
