Felix Baumgartner: Is ‘adventure’ in your family?

Yesterday, millions of people around the world witnessed Felix Baumgartner jump from the edge of space.

Felix broke several world records in accomplishing this incredible feat which saw him break the speed of sound. He set a new skydiving record, at about 128,000 ft (39 km), reaching a speed of about 834 mph (1,342 kmh), or Mach 1.24.

He also broke a YouTube world record for number of concurrent views (about 8 million people watched the space jump live).

This isn't the first time Felix has tried something like this - watch some of his 'top' free falls on YouTube.
