Did you catch the space jump yesterday? If not, a very brave Felix Baumgartner broke the record for the highest sky dive ever at 127,000 feet above Earth. (See the video of the drop.)
See a rundown in the vid below of the camera system they set up to capture it all mid-air. Cameras were set up in the jump-off capsule, on Felix’s suit itself, and a helicopter.
