    The 19.5 mile high world record 'skydive' has stood for 50 years.

    Guess it's time some one tried to break it.

    I wonder what it feels like to break the sound barrier like that. I bet it hurts.

    That's not over the speed of sound unless it drops that much at those temps?

    What if the heater fails in the suit? That would be really cold.

    this is amazing post which tells about the jump of the man from a very high level .
    but it is risky to do this thing .what will happen if the parachute does not open, but it is game of courage

    Daredevil skydiver’s 24-mile jump

    ROSWELL, N.M. — Felix Baumgartner stood poised in the open hatch of a capsule suspended above Earth, wondering if he would make it back alive. Twenty four miles below him, millions of people were right there with him, watching on the Internet and marveling at the wonder of the moment.

    A second later, he stepped off the capsule and barreled toward the New Mexico desert as a tiny white speck against a darkly-tinted sky. Millions watched him breathlessly as he shattered the sound barrier and then landed safely about nine minutes later, becoming the world’s first supersonic skydiver.

    ------------
    Baumgartner, a 43-year-old Austrian, hit Mach 1.24, or 833.9 mph, according to preliminary data, and became the first person to go faster than the speed of sound without traveling in a jet or a spacecraft. The capsule he jumped from had reached an altitude of 128,100 feet above Earth, carried by a 55-story ultra-thin helium balloon.
