GoPro: Red Bull Stratos - Crazy Free Fall
« on: January 31, 2014, 07:14:16 pm »
Felix Baumgartner ascended more than 24 miles above Earth's surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon. Millions across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while free falling safely back to Earth. Felix set three world records that day—and inspired us all to reach beyond the limits of our own realities, and re-imagine our potential to achieve the incredible.

Pretty incredible video.

It's crazy to think that it's only 24 (or only a little bit more?) to get to space when I drive more miles to get to work everyday.

Damn, I didn't even think about that.  That is pretty crazy.
