Baumgartner Actually Faster Than Thought

Feb 06, 2013 -- 7:57am

(Metro) There was an error made when Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner jumped from a balloon nearly 128-thousand feet in the air to fly faster than the speed of sound. 

His speed was originally reported as more than 843 miles per hour. That is one-and-a-quarter times the speed of sound. 

New data says he was actually going ten miles per hour faster than that.
