Relive Felix Baumgartner's 9-minute epic space jump in new extended video
A new extended video reportedly shows Felix Baumgartner's epic jump from the space around 128,097 feet high and gives space enthusiasts or adventurers a chance to relive the moment.
The extended video from Felix Baumgartner's amazing space jump in October, 2012, shows him leaping out of his capsule from the breathtaking height for a duration of 9 minutes and 3 seconds.
According to Cnet, Baumgartner's first words when he stepped out of the capsule and got his first unobstructed view of the planet were, "There it is. There's the world out there".
The extraordinary video includes the freefall portion of the jump that lasted 4 minutes and 19 seconds.
During the descent, Baumgartner went supersonic for a few seconds, hitting upward of 800 mph.
The report said that the voiceover at the beginning is from Joe Kittinger, who set the world record for highest jump in 1960 and he was also an adviser on Baumgartner's 2012 jump.
