breaking the speed of sound

Insane, amazing, and brave!

14th of October - Austrian Felix Baumgartner set new records for the highest freefall jump,
the fastest freefall speed, and the highest balloon flight by a human. 

"When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble,
you do not think about breaking records anymore, you do not think about gaining scientific data.
The only thing you want is to come back alive."

Patiently waiting for the freefall, watching something like this on a live feed is terrifying and exciting
at the same time. I feel an indescribable desire to fly, too. :)

Speaking of "sound" , here's another awesome video, not a 128,000ft supersonic skydive
but gives me another kind of high vibe. Love listening to it. This guy is also amazing.
