Felix Baumgartner is Ready for Jump from over 127,000ft

Austrian dare devil Felix Baumgartner will attempt to ascend to over 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a free-fall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. The balloon is up in space and Felix Baumgartner is getting ready to jump now. Follow the Red Bull Stratos Mission live in our Space Jump Live Coverage with video.

Felix Baumgartner is definitely risking his life with this record breaking jump. He already broke the record of highest ascending manned balloon. We wish him all the best and that he will make it down safe again. 

Watch live now if you get into the live stream. If not try for instance Austrian Television.
