Not for acrophobes

This is just one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Seriously. It makes me hyperventilate. It's a video from a camera in one of the solid rocket boosters from a shuttle launch. It doesn't show anything until it separates at 1:55 and then it gives you a first-person view of what it looks like to fall back to earth.

Dang, that's freaky. Felix Baumgartener is planning to jump from the edge of space and freefall with a camera on his helmet. That ought to be something.
