This gif of the infamous internet cat jump mashed together with Felix Baumgartner's space jump is why the internet was created. We dare you to top it. Seriously, just try and top it, in the comments below.
Yesterday, extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner lept from a balloon hovering 24 miles above the surface of the Earth. This is what he saw on his way down. (Fair warning: this might make you nauseous.)
This is how you know Felix Baumgartner has made it: his supersonic skydive has already been reenacted by Lego minifigs. It's not quite as majestic as the real thing, but it's a fun little tribute—as well as a handy plug for Vienna's ModelMaker Fair, which takes place October 25-28.
Now that Felix Baumgartner has made the world's highest jump—from 128,100 feet above the Earth—he's not resting. Instead, he and his team are answering questions about his amazing stunt. Watch above.
Skydiver Felix Baumgartner wasn't able to attempt his record-setting jump last week on account of the weather. He tries again today, and you can follow his mission live on YouTube. His capsule was expected to launch at 11 AM ET (Update: Doors have opened and he's preparing to jump!), so keep your eyes and ears on…
Following a five-hour hold due to weather, today's attempt at the first-ever supersonic space jump has been cancelled. The look on Baumgartner's face after the mission-abort was announced, pictured above, says it all: this has been a disappointing day.
When most people skydive, they jump from an altitude between 3,000 and 15,000 feet. Today, extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner will leap from a balloon soaring 120,000 feet above sea level.
Oh, you've been skydiving? That's nice. Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner is underwhelmed by your "achievement."
