Watch Red Bull's Supersonic Space Jump From The Skydiver's Chest Cam

Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a Red Bull sponsored capsule 24 miles above Earth. He broke the speed of sound. He didn't disintegrate or die.

This is what it looked like from his point of view.

Red Bull is known for pushing the envelope when it comes to extreme stunts. But they also give the fans an unprecedented level of access and ways to view the event. Yesterday, Red Bull had the livestream on YouTube and cameras all over the place for its record breaking Stratos Space Jump.

However, during the jump, they didn't show live footage from Felix's point of view. This is probably because they wanted to be cautious in the event of something going incredibly wrong.

Now, footage from Felix's cameras are starting to leak on to the interwebs. First, the view is absolutely breathtaking. It's like nothing you've ever seen. Second, he goes into a pretty terrifying spin at around 700 MPH, which could have been disastrous.

But since we know that he survived, this footage is simply incredible and our collective jaws are still on the proverbial floor. Look for a complete video with Red Bull's outstanding production values to be out soon.

Watching this live, when he started to spin, I thought things were going to go bad. I'm betting he very nearly passed out. He sounded pretty disoriented and shaken up for a couple minutes afterward. It was hard to understand him, but it sounded like he said he was in a lot of pain shortly after he got the spin stabilized.
