Felix’s First Step Is A Doozy (Video)

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.

You can check out his video helmet cam and see how far Felix had to fall
