Watch new amazing video of Felix Baumgartner’s 24 mile jump to Earth
(KTVI) – New video of Felix Baumgartner’s record-shattering jump from the edge of space has been released. The extreme skydiver did a 24-mile jump back in 2012. His highest estimated speed on the way down was 729 miles per hour. The jump broke three world records, including becoming the first human to break the speed of sound. Baumgartner landed on his feet.
GoPro, a camera company that armed him with cameras for the jump, published video of the whole experience on Friday. They posted this description with the video, “With seven HERO2 cameras documenting every moment. From the airless freeze of outer space, to the record-breaking free fall and momentous return to ground—see it all through Felix’s eyes as captured by GoPro, and experience this incredible mission like never before. No one gets you closer than this.”
