Felix Baumgartner first step off the space pod was a doozy

Felix Baumgartner reached a speed of 834 mph, becoming the first human to travel at supersonic speed in free fall or outside of an airplane.

It took Felix 5 years of preparation as his giant helium balloon had taken to an altitude of 39,044 meters (128,097 feet or 24¼ miles) from where he descended towards Earth during 4 minutes and 22 seconds in free fall before opening his parachute.

The vertical distance of his freefall was measured at 119,846 ft.
