Red Bull Stratos: Baumgartner Jumps At 128,000 Feet

By  //  October 14, 2012



Deardevil Felix Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to break the speed of sound.  Brian Utley of the International Federation of Sports Aviation said Baumgartner reached a maximum speed of 1,342 km/h (833.9 mph) during his jump over the New Mexico desert. That amounts to Mach 1.24 – which is faster than the speed of sound. No one has ever reached that speed wearing only a high-tech suit. More than 30 cameras recorded the record-setting feat.
