Congratulations Felix Baumgartner

Felix Baumgartner has safely returned to earth having successfully ascended to over 128,000 feet.

He took around 10 minutes to return to earth and to enter the history books. Yet to be confirmed it is hoped that he will have set records for the highest manned balloon flight, the highest ever skydive and to have broken the sound barrier.

One other record he was hoping to beat was that set by Joe Kittenger for the longest free fall. Unfortunately Joe Kittenger has retained that honour by a just a few seconds.

Felix Baumgartner, I salute you. You have pushed the boundaries a little further out.
