Archival news footage of Air Force Captain Joseph Kittenger's skydive in 1960 from 19 miles above the earth.
Even though pressurisation in his right glove went wrong and his hand swelled to twice it's size, he continued the ascent. His final words before stepping off the Excelsior III were "Lord, take care of me now."
His speed reached 614mph (988km/h).
Kittinger's records for the highest ascent, highest parachute jump, and fastest velocity stood for 52 years, until they were broken last year by Felix Baumgartner.
