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.

While he was spinning @ 700+ mph, I thought:

They were talking earlier that if he lost consciousness due to a spin the chute would automatically deploy...

I was waiting for a "break apart in mid air" reference.
Just about everyone that jumps has a computer setup that will open the chute at a preset alt.

I believe they said it was set to go off if the G force from the spin reached a certain level. Otherwise he would have kept free spinning, while blacked out, until the altitude set the chute off.

CNN has a front page story on their website about the jump, early results say Baumgartner's top speed was 833.9 mph, or Mach 1.24.
