Felix Baumgartner captured worldwide attention as well as a new record when he accended 24 miles above earth in a hot air balloon, then jumped, falling to Earth in only 4 minutes. He fell at an amazing 834 mph - reportedly breaking the speed of sound - before landing safely.
- The last guy to fall to earth that quickly was Anthony Weiner when he accidentally tweeted nude pix of this “Twitter” to all of his constituents.
- Baumgartner is denying rumors that he snuck his girlfriend on the balloon so he could be the first man to join the “24 Mile High Club”.
