Every once in a while, something truly inspirational occurs. Earlier today I was able to witness one such event live with my kids via YouTube: the Mach 1.24 freefall by “Fearless Felix” (Felix Baumgartner) from over 24 miles above the earth.
The following pictures are courtesy of the iPad’s screen capture facility while watching the jump live on YouTube. They are in chronological order.
Although the world may have been focused on Felix (and his mom), I reminded my kids that even a seemingly individual event involves a team. This event was no different and the Stratos team is probably significantly larger than those captured on the video:
Thanks again, Felix and team, for inspiring me and my kids today, and congratulations on your accomplishments!
