Jump from the edge of space

The 43-year-old leapt from a capsule more than 38 kilometres above the Earth, reaching a speed of 1136km/h before opening his red and white parachute and floating down to the New Mexico desert.

Mission control erupted in cheers as Baumgartner made a near-perfect jump from the capsule hoisted aloft by a giant helium-filled balloon to an altitude of 128,097 feet (39,044 metres), even higher than expected.

Here is a couple of images i made just for the occasion

What do you think about it?
