Watch: GoPro Release Epic Footage of Felix Baumgartner’s Space Jump


There are certain events in your lifetime that you know exactly where you were when they happened. As a self-confessed space geek, Felix Baumgartner’s jump from the edge of space was a spectacle I refused to miss. Ascending to 24 miles above the earth’s surface Felix made history while breaking 3 world records — highest free-fall parachute jump (both FAI-sanctioned and unsanctioned), the highest vertical speed in free-fall and the greatest free-fall distance. He plummeted to earth with an attributed speed of 833.9mph (1,343km/h). Even hitting Mach 1.24 it still took nine minutes for him to reach the ground.

Luckily for us, the guys over at GoPro were there to catch the feat in the only way they know how… Epically!
