Austrian Felix Baumgartner set a world record for the highest skydive. He jumped out of a balloon 24 miles above New Mexico and became the first skydiver to break the sound barrier.
It took about 10 minutes for the 43-year-old to reach the ground.
He was in a freefall for much of the skydive. He went into a spin before regaining stability.
His parachute handled the remaining few thousand feet. In fact, he touched down feet first.
The biggest problem — his visor fogged up because a heater wasn’t working.
“This is very serious, Joe,” he told retired US Air Force Col Joe Kittinger, whose record he broke.
After touching down he raised his arms in victory. His family watched from the launch site. They cheered and hugged.
Baumgartner’s skydive toppled records that have stood for more than 50 years.
He hit a top speed of 833.9 mph on his way down. You have to hit 733 mph to break the sound barrier.
