Above link will open into a new window with full screen, amazing quality, live streaming YouTube video of Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking 23-mile skydive from the edge of space.

If all goes well, he will become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier, as well as the record for highest(120,000 ft) jump.

Currently, launch is scheduled to commence at 11:30 MDT, weather permitting. Could be very cool. Enjoy!

Looks like it's been aborted for the day due to gusty winds.

I've done my share of skydiving, but I have no desire to try something like that, oh hell no.
