Remember Felix Baumgartner? He's the guy who went nearly 25 miles above the Earth and jumped back in 2012. The stunt was callled the Red Bull Stratos and it helped Baumgartner set three world records as he fell 128,100 feet to the Earth's surface. Video of his jump basically broke the Internet as everyone tried to wrap their brains around the idea that a dude just walked off the edge of a stratospheric balloon like it was the diving board at the YMCA.

More than a year later, the world is now aware that Baumgartner was wearing a GoPro helmet camera during his jump.

GoPro was honored to be a part of this epic achievement, with seven HERO2 cameras documenting every moment. From the airless freeze of outer space, to the record-breaking free fall and momentous return to ground—see it all through Felix's eyes as captured by GoPro, and experience this incredible mission like never before. No one gets you closer than this.
