Felix Baumgartner: X-Games Generation Moon Man Moment

Felix Baumgartner jumped from 128,000 feet today as the world watched – some expecting to his demise – and gave the X-Games generation their own Neil Armstrong moment as he stood on the edge of his capsule and said, “…and now I’m coming home”, before stepping off.

Breaking the sound barrier during a freefall of over 4 minutes, he made a perfect landing.

He is, indeed, a beast. Red Bull gave him wings but he brought his own set of giant cojanes!
