Red Bull Stratos - freefall from the edge of space
Live stream.

Looks like its going to be launched at 1130 est.

Red Bull Stratos is a mission to the edge of space that will try to surpass human limits that have existed for more than 50 years. Supported by a team of experts, Felix Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and make a record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement.

well that was anticlimactic

tooge 10-09-2012 12:47 PM

its ballsy and cool and all, but wtf? that is quite a bit of money and resources to pay to have a dude freefall from space when we already know you can do it rather safely in an aircraft.
