Felix Baumgartner Pulls Off Historic, Death Defying Jump From The Edge Of Space [VIDEO]

Many, many people have seen this already.  I’m not exactly breaking any news here, but in case you missed the live YouTube feed, get ready for Felix On Demand

Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner, has set a world record.  At 128,000 feet this nut case (I mean sky diving expert) took the plunge and jumped out of a helium balloon at over 20 miles above the earth.  According to, he was quoted at a press conference after landing in the New Mexico desert as saying.  You can read the entire story there, or peruse Wikipedia for his background

 “Let me tell you – when I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble. You don’t think about breaking records anymore, you don’t think about gaining scientific data – the only thing that you want is to come back alive,” he said afterwards at a media conference.

                                      Here is the amazing jump, via YouTube

Can you possibly imagine what would go through your mind in those final moments after leaping out of that capsule 20 miles above the earth?  What would be your final words right before you jumped?   I know what I’d say.  It would be one short word of less than 5 letters repeated 50 times in a row.  I’ll leave  it at that.   Congrats however to Felix.  Amazing, huh?
