man, you gotta give credit where it's due

Almost 18 miles of free fall in four minutes.. 536 MPH...
No engines.. just gravity.. and this was a test jump...
I so hope they load up the video of the actual jump itself..that's gonna be an impressive 5 minutes or so.

Felix Baumgartner leapt from the balloon in a space suit and was in free fall for nearly four minutes, reaching speeds of 862 kph (536 mph), before opening his parachute and landing safely in the desert of New Mexico.
