Update #3: Okay, so, he's alive. It worked. That was all a bit stressful, yes? Baumgartner survived jumping from almost 130,000 feet above the earth. He didn't break the record for longest free fall. Kittinger still holds that record. But Baumgarter did (unofficially) break Mach 1. He did break the record for highest sky dive.
This is the start of the dive in a GIF, as tweeted by Reuters' Anthony De Rosa.
Some shots of the earth from the capsule's cameras before the jump:
For a while all you could see was this black-and-white, blurry outline of him while he was falling. It was terrifying. He was spinning for a while at the start, but that was expected. Eventually he stabilized and, after a while of free falling, was able to open his parachute.
First in color shots of the man after he returned to earth from space.
Relieved mom Eva Baumgartner is really relieved.
Land! Sweet, solid, stable, not falling, beautiful land!
Photographer makes first contact with the strange space man:
And that's it, folks. Approximately 8 million people watched the Youtube stream. There were also broadcasts on national television networks. Most importantly, though, a man jumped from the edge of space and survived.
