Daredevil In Space

In a breathtaking moment on October 14th,  Felix Baumgartner stepped into the abyss, 24 miles above the earth’s surface. This was a “boldly go where no man has gone before” Star Trek moment watched live by almost 8 million people. He reached Mach 1.24 or 833.9 miles per hour — faster than the speed of sound which means that he’s the first human to travel faster than the speed of sound without being inside a craft.
