New World Free Fall Record

Felix Baumgartner fell 24.2 miles before landing safely on earth (NY Times story here).

Video link below:

Used to be people in the US did this sort of thing - now they just come here (Felix is from Austria) to do it...

How sad.

The previous record holder Joe Kittinger, a USAF Captain, had held the record since 1960.
