Fri, January 31, 2014 8:05pm EDT by 3 Comments

Felix Baumgartner will forever be remembered for his record-breaking 24.5-mile jump from space on Oct. 14, 2012. And now there is brand new first-person camera footage of his awe-inspiring feat. Watch the video right here!

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner became the first man in history to break the sound barrier in freefall after skydiving almost 25 miles to Earth from the edge of space. In newly released footage of Felix’s descent, we can take the plunge right along with him, and see everything he saw during his death-defying freefall.

The video, which will feature in GoPro’s Super Bowl commercial on Sunday, Feb. 2., reveals Felix’s jump with perfect clarity — it’s like we’re right there with him (although we’re glad we’re not)!

Amazing POV Of Felix’s Space Jump

The scariest part is Felix’s one minute freefall, in which he plummets to Earth at more than 500mph and says he feels like he has to “pass out.” We can’t believe he landed safely on the ground!

Felix hit mach 1.24 as he dropped to Earth from 128,000 feet, a feat he had been planning for five years! One tiny error could have made his blood boil and his brain explode.

For more than four minutes, Felix was a white speck falling through a dark sky plunging from 24.5 miles above Earth at up to 834mph.Then, Felix’s parachute opened and five minutes later he successfully landed on the ground, having made the highest and fastest skydive in history!

After the fall 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.”

Are you surprised Felix succeeded, HollywoodLifers? Do you think this new footage is amazing? Let us know.
