Recently a friend brought Felix Baumgartner to my attention. Besides being the subject of some fantastic helmet shots (which you’ll see I post a lot of on this blog), he’s planning on breaking the sound barrier. Not with a plane. Just him and a suit.

Here’s a great propaganda movie paid for by Red Bull:

Clearly this is some pretty amazing stuff, and reminds me of the Boards of Canada video I posted awhile back (also brought to my attention by Sam). Here’s to hoping Felix lands on a surf board (or a skate board, wouldn’t that be cool?)
