Felix Baumgartner“Sometimes, you have to get up really high to understand how small you are,” were Red Bull Stratos skydiver, Felix Baumgartner’s last words before he began his death-defying, record breaking, 128,120 foot plummet to the Earth’s surface. Back in 2012, in a stunt that put’s Sandra Bullock’s performance in “Gravity” to shame, Baumgartner became the first person to break the sound barrier — plunging to deserts of eastern New Mexico at speeds of about 843 mph/Mach 1.25! Now, two years later, stomach-churning, footage from the seven HERO2 GoPro cameras worn by the the skydiver “space diver” has surfaced.

The thrill-seeker had a rough return to Earth, especially when the he goes into an uncontrolled, dizzying spiral around the 6:00 mark. Eventually Baumgartner  even says to Mission Control, “I have been in a violent spin for a long time — feels like I have to pass out” when he reached a startling 555 mph and 69310 feet above ground. Check out the nauseating, vertigo-inducing footage of Felix Baumgartner’s Red Bull Stratos space jump below — but be sure to grab a barf bag.
