History was made yesterday, and the whole world came together to be part of it… online. Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner and the rest of the Red Bull Stratos team broke multiple aerospace records, while millions watched online.
The online community connected, shared and participated in ways I have never seen before. For more than two hours people all over the world got together via social networks to witness this incredible spectacle.
Here are the highlights of the mission:
P.S. As the short video shown above does not give the full perspective of what represented for Felix to jump from 39 km up and reaching a top speed of 1342km/h, or 1.24 times the speed of sound (making him the first human to travel faster than the speed of sound without being inside a craft), here is the full video of the jump.
