Baumgartner makes world record freefall !

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner fell to Earth from 24 miles up Sunday, enrapturing millions of people following a live feed of his stunt as he became the first human being to travel faster than the speed of sound without the assistance of a craft.

During a four-minute, 20-second free fall from an altitude of 128,097 feet, Felix Baumgartner reached a speed of Mach 1.24 or 833.9 miles per hour, according to an official with the National Aeronautic Association. He has become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall. It is exactly 65 years day to day after the American fighter pilot Charles Yeager crossed the mythical sound barrier on a prototype aircraft lar Bell X 1 for the first time.

He stands to have broken three records:

  • the highest jump from a platform,
  • the longest free fall without a drogue parachute
  • and the highest vertical velocity.

These are mind-blowing numbers,” Baumgartner said at a news conference later. “When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble, you do not think about breaking records anymore, you do not think about gaining scientific data. The only thing you want is you want to come back alive.
