In October 2012, Felix Baumgartner jumped from a special balloon craft suspended 128,000 feet up in the stratosphere. He plummeted toward earth, experiencing more than four minutes of freefall, and broke three world records in the process. Now, almost a year and a half later, Red Bull and GoPro have released new HD footage captured from seven different cameras during the jump.

You simply cannot take your eyes off this eight-minute-plus video of Baumgartner breaking the speed of sound in his dive toward the planet. In addition to being the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall, Baumgartner also set the record for highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight.
