    LIVE: Red Bull Stratos Jump

    A live steam as Felix Baumgartner is making his ascent to 23 miles above the Earth to make a death-defying free fall

    For everyone who hasn't heard about it: What is the mission/What is Project Red Bull Stratos?
    from their site:

    Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground.

    from Forbes:
    Red Bull Stratos, a project five years in the making, will finally try to take flight today. Skydiver Felix Baumgartner will fall from near-space about 23 miles above the Earth’s surface, breaking the speed of sound in the process. He will be the first free-falling human to break the sound barrier. Baumgartner will also collect three other world records: highest manned balloon flight, highest altitude jump (both will be 120,000 feet) and longest time in free fall (about five-and-a-half minutes)

    Side Note: I think this is pretty boring but I figured a few people on here would find this interesting.
