Last year, thrill seeker Felix Baumgartner set the world record for highest dive, an astounding 128,000 feet above the earth’s surface. Red Bull released POV video of the fall. It’s breathtaking.
Baumgartner reached a top speed of 844 mph, more than enough to break the speed of sound. At one point during the fall, Baumgartner goes into a spin, a nasty one that appears uncontrollable. He pulls it off though and his descent afterward is relatively calm.
