Felix Baumgartner's supersonic freefall from 128k' - Mission Highlights

Here's Red Bull's take on the jump they funded. Great views from the capsule and from one of the cameras on Felix's suit. I expect more impressive videos to come as they edit the whole footage. One of the key moments comes when the atmosphere becomes thick enough for Baumgartner to control his descent. In the footage you see him go from spiraling in to a controlled delta flight position.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
