Here’s what Felix Baumgartner’s high-speed free fall looked like from his helmet cam. Millions were watching as he jumped 128,000 feet above the earth.

He hit speeds of 700 miles per hour—breaking the speed of sound—before landing safely in New Mexico. The fall lasted about nine minutes.

Baumgartner says he now wants to become a helicopter rescue pilot.
