"Felix Baumgartner's Supersonic Freefall"

On Sunday, after ascending to an altitude of 128,100 feet in a helium-filled balloon, 43-year-old Austrian skydiver, Felix Baumgartner, completed a record-breaking jump from the edge of space. He reached a maximum speed of 833 mph as he plummeted toward Earth -- through the near vacuum of the stratosphere. His free fall lasted four minutes and twenty seconds.

He also broke two other world records -- highest freefall, and highest manned balloon flight.

And, for a little fun, how about a recreation of this historic jump -- in LEGO!
