Felix Baumgartner made his amazing jump yesterday. Waiting verification but he may have broken the sound barrier. If he did, he was not thr first guy with a parachute to break the sound barrier. A test pilot named Bill Weaver had his plane break apart from around him in 1966 at mach 3.18!!! He was at 78,000 feet when his place literally left him in mid air....at MACH3.18!!! His co-pilot did not survive. Below is a link to a blog where he wrote about it.
