The world held its breath when Felix Baumgartner jumped from the edge of space on October 12, 2012, falling from an altitude of 24.2 miles to Earth. And now there's a Baumgartner's-eye view of his epic fall—including a dizzying spin.
A new video clip was released this weekend during a Super Bowl XLVIII commercial for GoPro cameras; seven cameras were used to capture Baumgartner's point of view. The Super Bowl ad showed six seconds, but a longer video of the jump has been released.
Before the previously unreleased footage starts, there's a historic clip of Baumgartner's predecessor, Joe Kittinger, suiting up for his jump from 31 kilometers (20 miles) up in 1960. Kittinger trained Baumgartner and was his guiding voice as he prepared to jump.
The cameras follow Baumgartner on his descent and capture the dizzying free-fall spin. "Feels like I have to pass out," he said as he spun downward.
Baumgartner seemingly hovers above the surface before landing in the field below.
Baumgartner broke the record for skydiving and became the first person to break the speed of sound. He was chosen as the National Geographic People's Choice Adventurer of the Year 2013 and was interviewed last year after his jump. (See photos from his historic jump.)
