After weather delayed the jump last week, Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner made history on Sunday when he jumped from the highest-ever altitude and became the first skydiver to break the sound barrier. For what was called the Red Bull Stratos mission, Baumgartner jumped in a special pressure suit, stepping off from a capsule that had been lifted up by a 55-story, helium-filled balloon to more than 24 miles above the New Mexico desert -- some three times the altitude of where planes usually fly -- and landed some nine minutes later. In between, he spent about four minutes and 20 seconds in freefall before activating his parachute, reaching a maximum speed of 833 miles per hour to break the sound barrier by a significant margin.
