The one year anniversary of Felix’s record setting jump just passed and to celebrate it Red Bull Stratos posted this video on YouTube. You can watch the entire documentary about the jump here (requires a rdio account login).

Just watching this video makes my palms sweat and my heart start to race. I don’t often like to admit to being a giant wimp but I cannot imagine the amount of courage it took to not only take a hot air balloon 127,852 feet up into the edge of space but then look out and decide to just fucking jump out of said balloon.
