WATCH: Helmet Cam Video Of Supersonic Space Jump

Ground Control to Major Tom

Take Your Protein Pills and Put Your Helmet On

This is the first footage from Felix Baumgartner's helmet cam as he fell to Earth 25 miles below.  It starts right after the jump and shows the moment he breaks the speed of sound and spins out of control.  According to Red Bull Stratos, Felix thought he was going to lose consciousness at one point because of the violent spinning:

"There was a time I really thought I was in trouble.  I had to decide to fight all the way down and I finally got stable.

That spin became so violent it was hard to know how to get out of it.  I was able to get it under control and break the speed of sound.

I could feel myself break the speed of sound.  I could feel the air building up and then I hit it."*—Felix Baumgartner


Great, short recap - from beginning to end:
