Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner made history with his amazing space jump on Oct. 14. After floating to the edge of Earth's atmosphere in a balloon-lifted capsule, Baumgartner performed a record-breaking free-fall jump, covering 23 miles at 834 mph before opening his parachute and dropping safely to terra firma. Baumgartner, who wanted to set a record and practiced five years for the jump, said he didn't enjoy the experience until his chute opened.

"When my parachute opened, this was the first moment where I enjoyed it a lot because I knew it was over and I'm alive,'' he said after the monumental leap.
