Supersonic skydive

Felix Baumgartner, the Austrian pilot and skydiver, jumped from an altitude of 128,097 feet Sunday, breaking the speed of sound. Minutes later, Baumgartner landed safely near Roswell, New Mexico, after a 4:19-minute free fall reaching an estimated speed of 834.37 mph.

This was a most impressive achievement, and by all accounts Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team approached this highly risk mission in a methodical, cautious and professional manner. Credit is due to the Red Bull for their sponsorship.
