Felix Baumgartner Breaks Sound Barrier and World Records

Felix Baumgartner completed his Stratos freefall jump from an altitude of 39,045 meters on Sunday and landed himself in the records books. Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h, broke the sound barrier, and broke the records for highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight.

Here are a few highlights from his jump followed by a second video from his suit camera.

Update: The Guardian has the answers to many of the common questions such as where did the capsule go, and what did Felix eat before his jump?
