- About this Video
- Felix Baumgartner made history Sunday when he jumped from a space capsule 128,097 feet above the Earth and free fell at Mach 1.24 (834 mph). Baumgartner became the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall before landing safely in the New Mexico desert. The 43-year-old Austrian pilot and skydiver broke two other records Sunday: the highest free fall and highest manned balloon flight.
The Red Bull Stratos pilot, who live jumped in front of a YouTube audience of 8 million, hit Mach 1.25 on his free fall back to Earth on October 14, 2012.
According to the search engine, "Fearless Felix," who broke the speed of sound in free fall, was one of the most intriguing people in 2012.
