Felix's supersonic jump

Austrian daredevil Felic Baumgartner's seven year wait to break the sound barrier has come to pass and here's a look at his remarkable leap.

Felix Baumgartner may have had to wait a little longer than he expected to leap into the record books but the Austrian daredevil made up for that wait by jumping from his helium-filled balloon at an higher than expected altitude of 128,097 feet.

After seven years of training Baumgartner has broken the speed of sound in a free fall that comes sixty five years after Charles Yeager became the first man to outrace sound in his experimental plane.
