Down to Earth

If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing one the coolest, ballsiest, most astonishing feats ever. Yesterday Felix Baumgartner made history when he successfully completed a supersonic skydive through the earth’s stratosphere, breaking the sound barrier in a thrilling freefall from 24 miles up in space. Wearing a pressurized spacesuit, he jumped from his capsule and reached a speed of 833 mph. A few minutes later, like the consummate professional that he is, he released his parachute and landed on his feet in Roswell, New Mexico. So badass.

Millions of people around the world watched Felix Baumgartner’s space jump live, and 24 hours later he’s still a trending topic on Twitter. This amazing photo of Felix standing in the open door of his capsule seconds before his jump is one for the books:

This Music Monday is dedicated to Felix Baumgartner and his record-breaking space jump. Remember these guys? ūüėÜ

      Ha, yeah! Van Halen. That video is some 80s nostalgia. I saw them in concert way back when.
