Felix Baumgartner breaks sound barrier as he free falls from space (29 Photos & Video)

  • Bingo Fanoola

    In the interests of pedantry I should point out that space starts at 62 miles.

    • LS2_Goat

      The jump was from the edge of the Stratosphere hence the name of the mission "Stratos"

      • Tyler P

        I think he's pointing out that in the tweet it says he jumped from space, which he did not.

        • MikeyMate

          I guess 24 miles isn't enough to impress some people

          • Justin Cider

            that's what she said

            • Micheal Scott

              Hahahahah yes!

        • KFAD

          Out of space

      And FYI he never technically went "Super Sonic" There was no transonic band.

    • Dr. Fuck U Douche

      Well, I'm a doctor
      I just saved a child's life.
      But for sure today u win… douche

      • TNchiver

        Yea, i liked this post till I got to #29. He just sounds like an arrogant prick now! Guess he kinda has a reason to be cocky, but still a douche bag thing to post.

        • Eddie

          It's not his real twitter.

      • Guest

        You saved a child's life, but he can fall really fast…I don't know…let's call this one a tie

        • Guest

          Heh….Although to fair, that is a fake account

    • back2worknow

      Global troll is successful.

    • SuperDanMan4290

      Homework for a Senior College class….Not close enough to jump from space though.



      • Please

        Can you do everyone a favor and stop putting "~SuperDanMan" after your comments.

        • SuperDanMan4290

          hmmm, No. IDGAF

    #27 You are insane.. I like that!

  • Tiber_Septim

    An amazing feat of daring!

  • I_Johannes

    #11 When he jumped, all I could do was listen if he was still breathing. And then there was a short break in the live stream and I didn't hear if he was still breathing. And I found my self yelling to my computer: "Breath! Please breath you crazy bastard!!". S*"#t that was exciting.

    • Tornpantz

      You could tell he was nervous as hell, but it was pretty funny how the ground crew kept saying " Felix undo the oxygen hose… undo the oxygen hose Felix…undo the oxygen hose.. good boy", like he was some kind of trained dog.

  • kaboom!

    #29 well i just had waffles and went back to sleep 😦

  • djstout17

    Balls… This guy has them.

    • 1fjef

      Yeah I'm not sure where he
      had them stored in that space suit because they've got to be the size of basketballs!

    • Dj Rumba

      I hope not, he's endorsed by red bull.

  • ktmsandwitch

    #7 that moment when the whole world is watching, yet you feel completely alone

  • MandoMerc14

    That guy will never pay for a drink ever again.

    • pgvw

      Obviously the rest of us pay far to much if they can afford this shit lol

      • Devil Doc

        First of all, you meant too* … Second of all, no one's making you buy Red Bull. It's not like it was tax dollars, I'd rather see them put their money towards this, a huge day for the scientific community, then towards their CEO's new yacht.

        • Ryno

          You must have meant than* towards their CEO's new yacht.

          • Devil Doc

            Indeed I did haha, no excuse on that one.

    • AMB

      not from redbull anyways

    • 1fjef

      Not in my bar he won't. It'll be well worth the investment to be this guys wing man trust me.

  • Ghilo

    What a badass.

  • jabrone

    #7 Photo alone has me feeling terribly uneasy.

  • Nate

    #13 #14 Not from the record jump, but all these photos are still awesome.

    • Daniel Tosh

      "And I'm freeeeee, free fallin'

    • Dazz

      Neither is #7 #15 #27

    The only thing that could have made this more awesome would have been if the pod he went up in was a giant Red Bull can. Congrats to you Felix!

  • IRawdoggedyurgf

    So what the hell do you do after this….everything would be so mundane! Its like losing your virginity to scarlett johannsen, everything would be downhill from there!

      This photo also not from the record jump. Chive is too lazy to sort them. Just copy from Red Bull's site.

  • sledneck600

    What’s next? Landing on the moon?!?!
    But seriously this guy is legendary.

  • Lyra

    #29 Well, that just made him a little bit of a assh*le…..

    • ThoseDamnTrolls

      That's not his real twitter account. Wasn't him.

      • KAFman

        If it's on the internet… it's true.

        • repoman86

          I'd like to introduce you to a little someone called DaveonWheels

    • Justlikemypoop

      He just jumped out of friggin' space!!! He can be an A-HOLE if he wants! 😛

    • Felix's Mom

      You can see his name is misspelled on the account, not sure if it's included for the joke (which is funny) or just bad reporting.

    • BWaecker

      I know it's not him and it sounds douchey, but if I did that there would just be a picture of my dick with "suck it" written above it.

      • Jack o' lantern

        Would you use a really tiny font to make your junk look normal sized?

  • N8orius

    what happened to the capsule? entered space, fell back to earth and hit someone's house? where's the closure?

    • Drunkn1

      It was cut from the balloon and parachuted back down, it's probably now being used by Felix's kids as a fort of awesomeness – If he has any that is!

      • http://twitter.com/undefined @undefined

        If he didn't, he does now, all the women watching the video got pregnant just from their imaginations

    • Ashkan

      the capsule had separate parachutes and it landed safely a few minutes after he landed. the big balloon was also recovered 🙂

  • Franky
  • Tyler P

    insanity at its finest

    congrates man, you are now the fastest man
