The Red Bull Stratos mission carried Felix Baumgartner to an altitude of over 128,000 feet — 8,000 feet higher than planned — when the daredevil took the plunge into thin air. Despite a minor issue with Baumgartner’s visor causing it to fog up unexpectedly, the ascent progressed as planned. The New Mexico weather even allowed a picture perfect ascent over Roswell.
