After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump for the ages from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane. Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h (833mph) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long freefall. The 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert also broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight), leaving the one for the longest freefall to project mentor Col. Joe Kittinger.

Pythias Brown has admitted to stealing $800,000.00 worth of passengers items while working as a TSA Agent. He first realized how easy it was to steal when he left a camera out of luggage he was screening. He decided to take the camera home to avoid being punished for his mistake, and that’s when his stealing spree began. This lasted for about four years until he was caught auctioning off an identifiable camera belonging to a CNN producer. At the time of his arrest, he had a total of 80 cameras for auction on Ebay, as well as many other items. I believe this is a fair warning to all travelers going through security.
