Supersonic Freefall

Ok, this isn’t really English-related (though there are some instructions given in English throughout), but WOW this is amazing!

Recently, Felix Baumgartner attempted a record-breaking freefall jump from 120,000 feet – 23 miles – above the earth as part of Red Bull Stratos: a mission to the edge of space. The attempt took place near Roswell, NM, USA, and Felix Baumgartner was the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body, protected only by a space suit. As no one had successfully jumped from this height before. This animated video gives us a sense of what to it was like.

Below are links to the actual video of the jump as well as a funny Lego version of the jump. Enjoy!
