Human being reaches 834 miles per hour in freefall.

Felix Baumgartner broke several long standing records in what must of been an unbelievable adrenaline rush. I watched it live, actually tape delayed 20 seconds in case of a tragic end, and it was an amazing feat.

He's says he retiring from the spectacular jumps and will instead pilot a search and rescue helicopter.
