Pictures From The Edge Of Space - Redbull Stratos

So today as many of you know, Felix Baumgartner jumped from the edge of space. 128,000ft straight up, stepped out onto a platform the size of a skateboard and broke multiple world records including the one they were aiming for, breaking the speed of sound without an aircraft.

A little snippet from BBC.com:
"Austrian Felix Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to go faster than the speed of sound, reaching a maximum velocity of 833.9mph (1,342km/h)."

Here is what seems to be a leaked video from his onboard chest cam as well.

Take a look at these amazing shots of that made history today.

That fourth shot is just out of this world. 

I see what you did there :P

I bet Manfrotto wishes they had left the logos on those Magic arms holding the cameras!!

Ha - at 7:45 the commentator says he's not sure of the altitude of the ground!

(jumps are always altitude above ground, not see level)

Some of those cameras used in the rigs were RED Ones! Can't wait to see the full r3dcode RAW 4k video!
