Supersonic Felix

Yesterday Felix Baumgartner did something that was completely superhuman. He jumped out of a balloon that was 120,000ft up in the air! That’s the same as 120 Eiffel Towers stacked on top of each other!

Felix has broke lots of world records by doing this including the highest ever parachute jump! He is also the first man to go faster than the speed of sound in a parachute jump. He eventually reached 833 miles per hour. That is faster than most jet planes!

It’s fair to say that Felix is an absolute legend and completely fearless. If you didn’t see the jump last night, here’s a video recap!
