"First we got off with a beautiful launch and then we had a bit of drama with a power supply issue to my visor,” redbullstratos.com Monday quoted Baumgartner as saying.
Describing his record breaking jump from the stratosphere, he said: "The exit was perfect but then I started spinning slowly. I thought I'd just spin a few times and that would be that, but then I started to speed up. It was really brutal at times. I thought for a few seconds that I'd lose consciousness."
"I didn't feel a sonic boom because I was so busy just trying to stabilize myself. We'll have to wait and see if we really broke the sound barrier. It was really a lot harder than I thought it was going to be," he said.
