Remember all that talk about this guy, Felix Baumgartner, who was teaming up with — of all companies — Red Bull to attempt a sky-dive from the edge of the stratosphere? Well, yesterday morning he actually did it.
Baumgartner jumped from a height of 24 miles above New Mexico and was in free-fall for over four minutes before he deployed his parachute. during which he reached a speed of 830 miles per hour, breaking the sound barrier.
The jump was apparently “a lot harder than [he] thought it was going to be.”
