Free jump from approximately 71,580 feet and survived ?

You would have heard about free fall from 5000 feet or 15000 feet.I am sure you would have not heard or experienced about 71,581 feet free fall. Yes the man Felix Baumgartner landed successfully on earth after jumping from a specially made Helium capsule.

 At a height of 13 miles off the ground, after running through his checklist and depressurising the capsule, he leap into the thin cold air. It took exactly 3 minutes and 43 seconds with a peak speed of 364 mph. Its almost crazy feat isn't ?

He pulled out his parachute at 7,890feet and landed almost 30 miles from Roswell, New Mexico.

Checkout this video clip to know more. Don't expect the free fall video because its kept in suspense until the 120000 foot leap.
