LIVE FEED: Felix Baumgartner’s Freefall From Space

Final thoughts.
Here’s a shot of Felix Baumgartner getting ready to jump from space.

And here’s Felix jumping from his capsule.

Felix Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and make a record-breaking freefall jump this morning.
Here is the livefeed of the event.
He’s going up around 23 miles above Earth in a balloon.

From the video: 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.

The jump was a success and took around 5 minutes before Felix reached ground in New Mexico.
