Felix Baumgartner’s space jump in HD is just… wow

Happened to catch this live way back in October 2012 (OMG, has it really been that long?) and it was the craziest, most thrilling thing I’d seen in a long while. In case you missed it, Felix Baumgartner rode a stratospheric balloon up to 128,100 feet above Earth, opened the door, and jumped. On his way down, he broke the speed of sound and set three world records. Watching everything unfold in real time was pretty awesome, but to see it in HD and hear everything that was said is another thing altogether. By the way, Vanity Fair also did a profile piece on him.
