RedBull Stratos CGI

Who would have ever thought an energy drink sponsor would be contributing to the development of space exploration. This is the weird world of reality. Felix Baumgartner‘s space jump was the highest (23 miles above earth) and fastest sky dive ever. His speed reached 833.9 mph today which means he is now the first sky diver to have ever broken the sound barrier. It took him 34 seconds to go supersonic. He also accomplished the highest balloon flight for those of you that champion balloons. Also, the Red Bull Stratos jump took place on the 65th anniversary of legendary test pilot Chuck Yeager‘s first supersonic flight. You can watch the actual jump here:

This CGI representation is pretty awesome:
