The Red Bull Stratos scientific mission is complete. Jumping from a stratospheric balloon Felix Baumgartner attempted to break the speed of sound in freefall. After flying to an altitude of 128,100 feet in a helium-filled balloon, Felix completed a record breaking jump after he reached a maximum of speed of 833mph. In doing so, he broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight).
