Felix Baumgartner had the world in the palm of his hand yesterday. Millions show him rise up to 127.000 feet (alomst 39km) before stepping out of his capsule, saluting the world and jumping off to get back home. During his freefall he reached estimated speeds of over 700 miles per hour (1100km/h) and this makes him the first person to break the sound barrier without the aid of machinery. It was simply amazing viewing and we salute this hero who continues to push the boundaries of humankind. Weíll also be drinking a few extra cans of Red Bull, just to say thanks for sponsoring all these people with crazy ideas.
