Red Bull Stratos Mission

Felix Baumgartner is attempting to be the first man to break the sound barrier (Mach 1) by himself. Jumping from 120,000 ft (around 24 miles), and reaching over 620 mph. I was watching today and the current record holder jumped from 19 miles up and reached 614 mph (0.9 Mach). The mission was aborted today due to high winds, but take a look at this and stay tuned to the Red Bull Stratos youtube site.
