Felix Baumgartner: Extreme Skydive from Edge of Space

Austrian extreme skydiver Felix Baumgartner has become the only human being to break the sound barrier after skydiving from the edge of space, 38 km above Earth. After a 4:19 minute dive, Baumgartner landed safely in New Mexico slightly at 2:20 p.m. ET Sunday. The first images of the video are very impressive, when Baumgartner opens the capsule door.

During its dive, through the stratosphere Baumgartner reached a speed of 1172 km/h. He broke 3 world records within one dive: the highest altitude balloon flight, the highest skydive and the first human to break the sound barrier. He could not break the fourth record: the longest free fall which is still in the possession of his mentor Joe Kittinger (4:36 minutes).
