Felix Baumgartner's Record-Setting Space Jump

Last weekend did you watch live, as I did, as Felix Baumgartner jumped from the edge of space to the terra firma in the American west? I even made a screenshot of the moment, live, when he dropped free from his capsule 25 miles above the earth. Just a few minutes later he was standing on the ground and greeted by a photographer. (Show's you how important it is to get those pictures, doesn't it? The first person to greet him was a photographer with a D-SLR to his eye.) I've enjoyed looking through this gallery of photos from the Huffington Post, showing not only preparations for this particular flight and jump, but from historic jumps made by Baumgartner--and others--in the past. It's an interesting gallery definitely worth a look--and it includes those photos made by the photographer who greeted him on his return.
