The Austrian daredevil did it. Felix Baumgartner jumped from 127,000ft and reached supersonic speed. Felix Baumgartner set a series of records with this amazing jump. He could even talk during the free fall. He landed safely after minutes of free fall.

Watch the Red Bull Stratos mission Live.

The years of preparation paid off. We will still see more from the jump as Felix was wearing cameras. It will be amazing to watch the free-fall first hand.
