Felix Baumgartner freefall video from Matthieu Pesesse on Vimeo.

Look at that man go!  At school we watched Felix Baumgartner jump from 24 miles high.  He free fell a distance of 119,846 feet (36,529 metres.  He reached the speed of 833.9 mph breaking the speed of sound.  I cannot believe he landed on his feet, he must of felt like jelly but as soon as his feet hit touched the floor he dropped to his knees.

Did you watch it?  Were you inspired to do something special?

    833mph! How much faster than the speed of sound is that! What is the fastest you think any man or woman has ever travelled with the use of machines? On land, in the air or in space.

    I am Keiko Ito and one of Dr. Strange’s students in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. I really enjoyed to read your post. I had never known this new. I was also inspired by his amazing jump. He was very brave. I think his jump gives kids dream and encouragement. Thank you for helping. Keep up the good work.
