A Higher Perspective: Felix Baumgartner

Don't know how I missed this big news, other than we did quite a bit of traveling this weekend, so I wasn't in tune with news stories. This morning my husband showed me the video of Felix Baumgartner from Australia who jumped out of a type of space capsule and broke all kind of records. As a result of this jump, he became the first man who actually hit Mach One speed with just his body plummeting through the air (from 128,000 feet). That in itself is astounding.

His statement just minutes before his historic jump really grabbed me:

"Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you really are." (Felix Baumgartner)
