October 15, 2012, 10:49 AM — Over the weekend, a lot of the world was transfixed as they watched Felix Baumgartner jump out of a helium-filled balloon from 128,100 feet above Earth (yes, he survived).
If you missed it, there's a ton of videos on the Web showing you what happened, but my favorite has to be this one, in which the highlights of the jump were re-created, in loving detail, with Lego bricks.
Imagine if YouTube were around at the time of Neil Armstrong's moon landing in 1969 - we would have had a video re-creating the event with Lego bricks. Oh wait, someone already did this.
In case you missed the original Baumgartner jump, Red Bull (sponsor of the jump) has this compilation/music video of the jump.
What other famous events would you like to see re-created by Legos?
