One giant leap

One giant leap by one crazy 43-year-old Austrian recently made worldwide headline news. Felix Baumgartner became the first man to break the sound barrier, without mechanical help, after he jumped from 39,045 metres (128,100 feet, more than 39 km, or more than 24 miles) up in space. He has thus achieved one of the most remarkable feats man can accomplish. The Austrian daredevil made his daring leap high above Roswell, New Mexico, USA.
