Felix Baumgartner jumps from the capsule during Sunday’s record-setting sky dive during which he broke the sound barrier. The dive from more than 24 miles up – the highest jump ever – proved to be a tumbling, death-defying plunge from a balloon culminating in a safe landing in the New Mexico desert.
