New video of Felix Baumgartner's space jump was released last week and, um, holy crap. The best way to describe the eight-minute video: pretty much the opposite of last night's Super Bowl.

On Oct. 24, 2012, Baumgartner broke the speed of sound while free falling 24 miles from a stratospheric balloon to Earth (specifically, New Mexico). "Instruments recorded his top speed at 843.6 miles per hour, which is 1.25 times faster the speed of sound," according to the Los Angeles Times.

The new video was shot entirely on the HD HERO2 camera from GoPro, according to the video's YouTube page. The jump starts at 3:43, but don't skip the pregame.
