    Part of this was used in a Super Bowl ad, but now the full video is included, along with footage of the previous high-altitude jump. I'll let NPR tell the rest of the story. Did I mention that he also broke the sound barrier? :eek:

    Here's the video. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the suggestion... It was nice to see this amazing footage and though it is a commercial for a camera, it is worth watching and realizing what a great record was made with that jump.

    Great video, although all the postproduction flair annoyed me a bit.

    Did you notice there were a couple of times it went to "0"! :eek:

    I love how clear the video is too. I shared this a couple of days ago and I find myself watching over and over. Good stuff!

    Something I would NEVER do. I'd die.
