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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
