What a jump!!

I don't mind telling you that my heart was in my throat especially half way through the freefall when Felix started to spin, but was able to regain control and stabilize himself for the rest of the freefall.

Its not sure at this time whether or not he can claim the record for freefall duration, the on-screen timer had him several seconds shy of Kittinger's record and they have to go over the data, but it looks like the other records are Baumgartner's.


A for Felix Baumgartner!

This thread is solved, but open for discussion!

If anyone finds it before I do, Discovery Channel played a video before they signed-off called redbull stratos mix, it was a brief synopsis of today's preparations to recovery, with a great music background.

Please post it.

EDIT:

For boo:

All video was buffered by RedBull 20sec. in case of complications.

And a BIG thank you to the Admins or Mods for changing the title of my thread.
I was debating whether or not to ask.

Dont think about it in future just do it (report button), something like that only takes seconds and we are happy to do it.
