Felix Baumgartner jumped from more than 24 miles above the earth’s surface back in October 2012. Millions watched it live via YouTube. On Friday, January 31, GoPro uploaded a first person view of the jump. To see Felix exit the Red Bull Stratos capsule is toe curling. To see his suit barely move in the first minute of his free fall shows exactly how little atmosphere he’s falling through. Enjoy this 8+ minute perspective.
