'Fearless Felix' Falls 24 Miles To Earth

He did it.

Felix Baumgartner broke the speed of sound during his stratospheric leap from 128,097 feet on Sunday and landed safely 9 minutes and 3 seconds later, touching down so gracefully that he made the whole thing look easy. He fell to his knees and raised his fists as his family, hundreds of people supporting his mission and, no doubt, the millions of people watching worldwide via the Internet cheered.

*Sorry if this has been put up. Searched didn't really find anything that was current.*

This is pretty awesome. Fearless Felix broke 3 of 4 records he was going after and also its 24 miles!!

I am afraid of heights so I couldn't even fathom doing it. But I know people that are thrill seeks and would prolly sky dive, but 24 miles is a long ways out.

Great story.
