We're warning you now: This new video of Felix Baumgartner's record-setting leap from the edge of space just might make you feel a bit queasy.

The supersonic skydiver made history in October 2012 when he plunged more than 24 miles to Earth's surface, breaking three records in the process.

Now, nearly a year and a half later, GoPro has released new footage of the daring jump, including a heart-pumping sequence in which Baumgartner enters an uncontrolled spin and nearly blacks out while falling faster than 800 miles per hour. Sheesh.

"I wish you could see what I can see," Baumgartner says in the video, just before he steps into the void. "Sometimes, you have to be up really high to understand how small you are."

Now, thanks to the new footage, we can.

WATCH the video, above. Jump starts at the 1:40 mark. Watch in full-screen and at high definition for the fullest effect.
