The first one was a thing of beauty and the first motorcycle jump was insane.

Yeah that last one is famous. He was as close to space as you can get without being an astronaut. I thought I read that he actually broke the sound barrier during his free fall but can't find it right now.

All of those jumps are amazing.

Said he fell at 500 kph, which is far short of the sound barrier... that would be crazy though.

I know the video said that but in my physics of aviation class I read a case study about a free fall breaking the sound barrier and I thought it was this one.

EDIT:

I figured it out. A guy had to eject and passed through a thunderstorm and lived. He passed out and there was thoughts he may have broken it during the ordeal. But its never been done and recorded. A guy is attempting to do it but I am not sure if he as done it yet.

Boards of Canada did a great music video with footage of Kittinger's jump.

I'm shocked they never mentioned this in the video:
Quote:
The third and final test, Excelsior III, was made on August 16, 1960. During the ascent, the pressure seal in Kittinger's right glove failed, and he began to experience severe pain in his right hand. (See Effects of vacuum on humans.) He decided not to inform the ground crew about this, in case they should decide to abort the test. Despite temporarily losing the use of his right hand, he continued with the ascent, climbing to an altitude of 31,333 m (102,800 ft).[2] The ascent took one hour and 31 minutes and broke the previous manned balloon altitude record of 30,942 m (101,516 ft), which was set by Major David Simons as part of Project Manhigh in 1957. Kittinger stayed at peak altitude for 12 minutes, waiting for the balloon to drift over the landing target area. He then stepped out of the gondola to begin his descent.

Nice!!!

Interesting that #10 and #2 are from the same Matchstick Productions movie.

But I gotta say, #9 was unbelievable!!! Those are some major balls to jump out of a plane without a chute.
