It's a quest to complete a record-breaking skydive, and break the speed of sound.
Felix Baumgartner was carried by helium balloon in this capsule to almost 30 kilometers above Earth.
According to Red Bull Stratos, a project using the jumps to gather medical and scientific research data, he executed a free fall of 3 minutes and 48 seconds, at speeds topping 830 kilometers per hour!
This is the second jump for Baumgartner, as he trains to break the record of a 36 kilometer fall at 1,126 kilometers per hour. He hopes to become the first person to break the speed of sound and achieve Mach 1 in free-fall. To do that, the daredevil needs to reach speeds of 690 mph, wearing a pressurized space suit and oxygen-supplied helmet.
In the next jump, the balloon carrying Baumgartner into the stratosphere will expand to the size of a small skyscraper as it rises.
