What It Looks Like to Free-Fall From Space (GoPro Video)

On October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner broke three world records when he jumped from Earth’s stratosphere, more than 24 miles above the ground.

He was in free fall for over 4 minutes, and broke the speed of sound (761.2 mph).

7 different GoPro cameras captured the monumental accomplishment with breathtaking perspective. The video also allows you to track Felix’s breathing rate, heart rate, speed and altitude.
