FELIX BAUMGARTNER’s Record JUMP At 127,900 ft

Suspense had been building over the past week,after the team called off the attempt multiple times. But when he finally was about to leap Sunday, Baumgartner says he wasn’t even thinking about records:

“When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble, you do not think about breaking records anymore. You do not think about gaining scientific data. The only thing that you want is you want to come back alive because you do not want to die in front of your parents, your girlfriend, and all these people watching this. This became the most important thing to me when I was standing out there.”

As he said during the fall and repeated during the press conference, “sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you are.”
