      One of those defining moments, what were you doing when....
      I doubt that. It was a great feat but no where near the scale of the Moon landing. Very few could remember the previous record holder which was set about 50 years ago.

      The state of modern technology is well displayed in the fact that Wikipedia is already updated to reflect the new record, an hour or two after the attempt. It credits him with reaching 729mph, even though this has still to be confirmed.

      There was not as many people on the earth 50 years ago, nor did they have Twitter, YouTube etc

      I had never even heard of this guy 5 days ago or so. I doubt anyone would not be able to recall his name now or in the future, even if he is only referred to as Felix.

      I had never heard of Red Bull either, whoever they are.

      Half a dozen vallium washed down with a Red Bull will soon fix that
