Red Bull Stratos

Ed. The jump was a success and the live video feed has been replaced with the mission highlights below.

Conditions finally appear right for Red Bull Stratos daredevil Felix Baumgartner to attempt his 23-mile plunge from the edge of space. Baumgartner is expected to reach speeds of 690 mph, which would make him the first person to break the sound barrier outside of an aircraft.

The supersonic skydive was originally planned for Tuesday, Oct 9, but windy conditions forced Baumgartner and team to abort the mission. Now, mission control reports an expected launch time of 11:15 am EST (update: 11:25 am EST) today, Sunday, Oct 14.
