    Felix Baumgartner’s World Record is no more. Google VP Alan Eustace just parachuted 26 miles. Yes, miles.



    Alan Eustace dove from a high-altitude balloon soaring at approximately 135,000 feet. Felix Baumgartner held the record at 128,000 feet.

    His footage sucks compared to Felix's - the record should stay with Felix.
