Humans like excitement and adventure.
Taking risks is good if you plan carefully and have the correct equipment.
Some people are exceptional and want to push themselves to the limit.
They also demonstrate extreme bravery.



After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump for the ages from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane.

Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,357.6 km/h or 843.6 mph(Mach 1.25) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long freefall.

The 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert also broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight).
