The best most of us can do when it comes to breaking things is a few road rules, maybe a school sporting record, or possibly a couple of hearts if your really really good looking. Felix Baumgartner broke the sound barrier! I don’t even understand what that really means but I’m impressed!

During his world record skydive on October 15th, Baumgartner reached the necessary 1,225.1 km/h (thanks Google) to surpass the speed of sound. Thankfully Red Bull got it on tape for Baumgartner, who would have missed the incident because he was traveling faster than the sound he was creating. (Right?) Well its pretty awesome anyway.
