After planning the feat for five long years, Felix Baumgartner a.k.a Fearless Felix breaks the speed of sound as he completes astonishing drop from the top of the stratosphere.
The 43-year old daredevil used 30 million cubic food helium balloon to hoist the capsule that carried him 24.5 miles up in the sky. He then made his astonishing jump from a tiny capsule that took him up to the edge of the space.
For four minutes, he was traveling up to 834mph before he was back on solid ground.
Talking about his achievement, he said: 'Trust me, when you stand up there on top of the world, you become so humble.
'It's not about breaking records any more. It's not about getting scientific data. The only thing you want is to come back alive.'
'When I was spinning the first 10, 20 seconds, I never thought I was going to lose my life but I was disappointed because I'm going to lose my record. I put seven years of my life into this.'
