A tiny step away from the big drop, the record-breaking free fall. Felix Baumgartner ascended more than 24 miles above the earth’s surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon before daring the unimaginable. Felix set three world records that day and inspired us all to stretch our limits, to reimagine our potential and to achieve the impossible. GoPro was part of this epic achievement with seven HERO2 cameras that captured every single moment of this record-breaking fall and safe return to the ground. Born in Salzburg, Austria, in 1969, Felix began skydiving at the age of 16 and refined his skills as part of the Austrian military’s demonstration and competition team. In 1988, he began performing skydiving exhibitions for Red Bull. For more please check out www.redbullstratos.com
