Man Takes Hot Air Balloon To The Edge Of Space…Then Free-Falls Back To Earth. Freaky AND Amazing!

Felix Baumgartner floated to an altitude of over 128,ooo feet (39,000 meters) in a helium filled air balloon and then completed a record breaking jump for the ages from the very edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier.  Baumgartner reached a maximum speed of 843.6 MPH (Mach 1.25) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere during his 4 minute and 20 second free-fall.

He broke several records but no bones!

 You have to wonder what he was thinking in his head during that fall.  WOW!  I now feel inspired to jump out of my chair and go get something to eat!
