FINALLY Felix's Space Jump!!!

Felix Baumgartner finally jumped from space!!!! The anticipated space jump was to have happened on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 but due to "gusty winds" it was postponed to yesterday, Sunday October 14th, 2012. He broke both the freefall world record and the sound barrier by jumping from 23 miles above the earth.


U.S. Air Force Col. Joe Kittinger Kittinger, who held the previous freefall world record of 19.5 miles in 1960, was the only person allowed to communicate with Baumgartner while he was inside the capsule which carried him into space and while falling.
Am trying to imagine how it felt jumping from space *worried look* But I'm sure its an experience Baumgartner would never ever forget in his life time. who is next? *shinning my teeth*
