First Felix Baumgartner head-cam footage hits the Earth

Felix Baumgartner, the Austrian who happens to be the first person to break the speed of sound without mechanical gizmos, holds the record for highest manned flight in a baloon and highest free fall jump and fastest descent, filmed the whole extravaganza on his head-cam.

The video is now available to watch but it is pretty sickening if you’re the faint of heart – the whole earth is literally spinning ike crazy.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, or you know, somewhere out of touch with under the social networks, and you’ve missed Felix Baumgartner’s feat – he ascended about 38 km in a baloon and then jumped feet-first back to Earth. It’s quite astonishing, really.

And in case you missed the live feed from the jump itself, you can have a look at the mission highlights video.
