As the whole world watched him via live streaming video, Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner completed a record-breaking freefall from the edge of space Sunday morning.
He reached speeds of more than 600 mph during the 128,000-foot fall to earth.
Baumgartner broke the record for both the highest jump and the fastest jump in a freefall. On the ascent, he also broke the record for the highest manned balloon flight.
