Watch Man Skydive from 24 Miles in the Air [VIDEO]

Warning. If you’re afraid of heights, this may be hard to watch. But, it’s amazing none the less. A daredevil jumped out of a plane that was 24 miles in the air. That’s just one of the amazing feats accomplished though.

Felix Baumgartner hit Mach 1.24, or 833.9 mph, according to preliminary data, and became the first person to reach supersonic speed without traveling in a jet or a spacecraft after hopping out of a capsule that had reached an altitude of 128,100 feet above the Earth.

All of this while making the highest jump in history -  a tumbling, death-defying plunge from a balloon to a safe landing in the New Mexico desert.

Baumgartner said:

When I was spinning first 10, 20 seconds, I never thought I was going to lose my life but I was disappointed because I’m going to lose my record. I put seven years of my life into this. Sometimes we have to get really high to see how small we are.

You’ve got to see this to believe it!
