A new video released by Red Bull tells the whole story of Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking jump from a stratospheric balloon at 128,100 feet in the air back in October 2012.

Over eight minutes we see Baumgartner preparing for and then executing the mind-bending jump, with guidance and encouragement from capsule co-ordinator Joe Kittinger – who made an impressive jump of his own to the tune of 102,800 feet back in 1960.

The footage was captured thanks to a total of seven GoPro Hero2 cameras strapped about Felix's person, allowing for a mind-blowing sequence of footage to be assembled.
