Yesterday Felix Baumgartner jumped from a capsule 24 miles high breaking several records – including some on social media.
The space jump was the highest altitude skydive in history and Felix reached a top speed of 833.9 mph, maing him the first skydiver to ever break the sound barrier. The stunt was a huge hit on social media and smashed the record for most livestream viewers on YouTube. It was shown on Red Bull’s YouTube channel and at its peak there were more than 8 million concurrent livestreams.
There was also incredible buzz on Twitter with #SpaceJump, #RedBull and #FelixBaumgartner all trending.
