Austrian Felix Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to go faster than the speed of sound. The daredevil jumped out of a balloon 24 miles above New Mexico, also breaking the record for the highest ever freefall. It took him under ten minutes to descend to earth, and he said that the experience made him feel very humble.

奧地利人 Felix Baumgartner 成為世界上第一位跳傘速度比聲速度還快的人。這位冒險家從新墨西哥上空,離地面24英里的一個氣球跳下。此舉同時也打破了有史以來最高的自由落體記錄。他10分鐘內就降落到地球,此次經歷令他感到非常渺小。


如果某人 on top of the world 這就是說他對某件事情非常高興。


My boyfriend proposed to me last night – I'm on top of the world!

Angela was on top of the world when her boss gave her a promotion.

If my football team wins tonight, I'll be on top of the world – it's going to be such a tough match.


如果什麼事情或東西是出乎意料的好,那麼就可以被形容為 out of this world.

You should try my mum's apple pie – the taste is out of this world!
