Felix Baumgartner set a record by skydiving 128097 feet, which is 24.26 miles.

BTW, any jumps from higher from 63,000 feet require a pressurized suit.

The entire fall took 9 minutes and 3 seconds.  He had a perfect landing.

His highest speed was 834 miles per hour, Mach 1.24.  (Sound travels approximately 761 mph.)
