Daredevil jumps into record books from 24 miles above Earth
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — With a short salute and a small step forward, Felix Baumgartner leapt from a capsule perched more than 24 miles above a barren New Mexico desert and landed safely, setting a world record for the highest sky dive.
“Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you are,” Baumgartner said before stepping off a small ledge on the outside of a capsule lifted into the stratosphere by a helium-filled balloon. “I’m going home now.”
