Fearless Felix not Foolish!
He did it and I smiled throughout the spectacle. Felix Baumgartner has officially become the first skydiver to break the speed of sound at a maximum speed of 1,342 km/h or around 833 miles per hour. In an awe-inspiring feat, the Austrian extreme athlete and skydiver jumped from more than 38 kilometres, around 24 miles over the Earth. Felix landed safely in the New Mexico desert, a standing landing after jumping from a capsule lifted by a helium balloon. His dive from the stratosphere is expected to provide scientists with valuable information for next-generation spacesuits. Extreme yes, foolish no!
