Felix Baumgartner’s Space Jump Recreated In LEGO

No-one can fail to be amazed by the supersonic freefall sky dive by Felix Baumgartner yesterday (Sun 14th October 2012) from the edge of space.

He ascended to the edge of space in a pressurised capsule which was suspended beneath a giant helium balloon. He then jumped out, freefalling for four minutes and 19 seconds before he then opened his parachute.

He also broke the record for the highest manned balloon flight after riding with the capsule 24 miles above New Mexico.

He reached a top speed of 834mph (1,342km/h) and broke the sound barrier, achieving the fastest freefall as well

However great this was, you cannot also fail to be amazed by the speed in which some Lego fans recreated this event as seen here in their video of the recreation of Felix’s skydive.
