Finally, new copy! (All copies on youtube are getting blocked):

This is the video of the Felix Baumgartner & Stratos record-setting jump from the “edge of space”. Felix jumped from 128,000 feet from his balloon, free-falling for nearly four and a half minutes before his parachute deployed, allowing him to safely landing back on Earth. He now holds world records for highest altitude in a balloon, highest jump from a balloon, and fastest free-fall speed from a jump (tentative, still awaiting official confirmation).

  1. Watched him take the leap yesterday… nail biting. Was waiting for the head cam footage. Wow.

    I also watched it live on Sunday. It was awesome. I thought he had lost it when he started spinning, but luckily as he hit thicker air he stabilised himself and started flying. He opened his chute at 5,000ft, so there was plenty of time to hit the reserve ih he had a malfunction. The landing was perfect, only 23 miles from the point ascended.
    A great achievement!!!
