Man Attempts to Break Record with 120,000 Foot Free-Fall [VIDEO]

YouTube

I have always been adventurous, and I love heights, but I’m not sure if I would have the guts to pull this off. J. Patrick reported back in March about Felix Baumgartner and his 13 mile jump from the upper atmosphere. Tomorrow morning, Felix will attempt to shatter the current record of 102,800 feet set back in 1960, by jumping from 23 miles up.  Reaching a speed of near 700 miles per hour, he will most likely break the sound barrier as well.


With a launch time set for 8:00am tomorrow morning, Felix will be carried in a custom capsule attached to a helium balloon several miles up, before jumping with nothing but a parachute to slow his fall. Check out more of the training Felix went through and more details about the jump below,and be sure to watch the action live Tuesday, October 9th at 8am by clicking here.
