This video of Felix’s Baumgartner’s famous 24-mile jump to Earth was posted on January 31 of this year and has already garnered over twelve million views. The new aspect of this video is that it’s filmed largely by GoPro cameras affixed to the jumper.
Reader Jon, who sent me the link to the video, adds this:
It’s been about a year and a half since Felix Baumgartner jumped from a balloon at the edge of space, but GoPro just recently released a video inviting everyone along for the ride. Baumgartner was wearing five GoPro HD HERO2 cameras to record his decent. Several other cameras were mounted to his capsule. The video starts with some historical footage of Joe Kittinger’s historic jump in 1960 from 19 ∏ miles. Kittinger served as capsule coordinator directing Baumgartner on his jump.
