Many have been waiting for this and it looks like it's about to happen:

news.ca.msn.com...

A weather hold that threatened to cancel extreme athlete and skydiver Felix Baumgartner's death-defying, 37-kilometre free fall into the southeastern New Mexico desert has been lifted and crews have begun laying out his balloon.


If the mission goes, Baumgartner will make a nearly three-hour ascent to about 36,500 metres, then take a bunny-style hop from a pressurized capsule into a near-vacuum where there is barely any oxygen to begin what is expected to be the fastest, farthest free fall from the highest-ever manned balloon.


Starting now:

I wish him luck!

Peace

its been aborted....yet again!!!
i see so many people who are in the 'mission control',all the facilities,and equipment and so on.
who is paying for this buffoonery???
what exactly is the whole point of this?
it can't just be for the world record!
i just can't understand any scientific merrit of this!!!!
besides the affects on the human body at mach 1.
and seriously,who would want to feel that????
maybe james bond!
well,this just keeps on being a non story,filled with more hype than anything useful.

Here is what I don't understand.

Look at all the help he needs to get out of that capsule, how in the hell is he going to get out of there and jump when he is at 120,000 feet with no one to help him get out of all those straps?

I see this ending badly, glad it has been canceled today. But it sounds like they are going to try again soon.

My channeled source told me that this mission was aborted due to an alien threat. This event would have triggered First Contact according to interstellar legislation, and was shut down by the secret government.
