Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner smashed a number of records with his "edge of space" stunt - including for live streaming.

More than eight million people flocked to their devices to watch the 43-year-old break the speed of sound live on Google's YouTube site.

Baumgartner also broke the record for the highest freefall.

He jumped from a capsule taken to 128 thousand 100 feet above New Mexico in the US by a giant helium balloon.
