Check Out This Incredible, Never-Before-Seen Footage Of Felix Baumgartner’s Stratosphere Jump

GoPro has released incredible new footage of Felix Baumgartner’s insane stratosphere jump from October 2012, and the view is not for the faint of heart. If you recall, Baumgartner dropped out of a capsule 24 miles above the Earth — so high that he could see the the Earth’s curvature — before hurtling towards the ground at a breathtaking 800 miles per hour (literally breathtaking, as he almost passed out at one point).

We must warn you, while the footage is beautiful and smooth, it is of a guy falling to the ground at all sorts of crazy angles, so consider yourself warned.
