CNN’s Brian Todd has the story on Felix Baumgartner’s record making skydive from space

Felix Baumgartner made history Sunday when he broke records jumping from 128,000 feet or 24 miles above the Earth, higher than anyone before him. Baumgartner became the first to break through the sound barrier outside of a vehicle. Traveling at a top speed of over 700 miles per hour at his peak, he was faster than the speed of sound. The free-fall lasted four minutes and 19 seconds. CNN’s Brian Todd has more on the story about the aerospace pioneer known as “Fearless Felix.”
