Did you catch the live feed of the Red Bull Stratus jump yesterday? A brave man named Felix took a weather balloon up to space and then jumped back down to earth. He had 35 cameras with him on his adventure and this Red Bull video gives us a look at them.

Some of them had to be altered to work in crazy conditions. Some were even encased in housings filled with nitrogen. Stuff like this is always fascinating to me because of the sheer amount of planning required. It's even tougher than strapping cameras to birds.

Did you watch the jump?
