Watch: Helmet-Cam View of Felix Baumgartner's Supersonic Dive

See the epic jump from Baumgartner's point of view

On Oct. 14, 2012, a helium balloon carried skydiver Felix Baumgartner 24 miles up into the Earth's stratosphere. After a two-and-a-half hour ascent, as millions watched live on the internet, "Fearless Felix" jumped, rocketing back to Earth at speeds of up to 834 mph. In so doing, he became the first freefall skydiver to break the sound barrier, and he landed safely near Roswell, N.M.

To celebrate the anniversary of the record-breaking feat, Red Bull released this a new video showing simultaneous views of the jump. One angle reveals footage of the entire descent taken from Baumgartner's helmet cam. The video also includes graphics that reveal real-time data about the dive, including air speed, g-force, altitude and heart rate.
