By Paul Johnson

(CNN) - You likely remember the incredible so-called "space jump" in 20-12 by Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner.
Now, 16 months after the stunt -- the go-pro camera company has released new video showing the 24-mile plunge from Baumgartner's perspective.
Take a look!
This is what he saw after making the breathtaking leap from a high-altitude balloon.
Baumgartner made the jump from 128-thousand feet in altitude -- a world record for a manned balloon flight!
He fell at speeds up to 843 miles per hour -- faster than the speed of sound -- and landed safely just over five minutes later.
So how does Baumgartner plan to follow up this epic stunt?
In a December 2013 interview with CNN, he said he hopes to use his skills as a professional helicopter pilot to help in rescue operations and firefighting missions, in Europe and the United States.
