(TruthSeekerDaily) October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner ascended more than 24 miles above Earth’s surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon. Millions across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while free falling safely back to Earth. Felix set three world records that day—and inspired us all to reach beyond the limits of our own realities, and reimagine our potential to achieve the incredible.
If there’s one thing we never get tired of watching, it’s Felix Baumgartner’s 2012 jump to Earth. Newly released HD footage offers another look at the beautiful, yet terrifying experience.
“I wish you could see what I can see. Sometimes, you have to get up really high to understand how small you are.” -Felix
And then he leaps. The rapid descent from 24 miles above sea level is captured on HD cameras attached to his helmet. The footage may look familiar, but this version is in HD, making the whole experience more beautiful and, yes, a lot more terrifying. In other words, not for the faint of heart.
