[Update: HE DID IT! Video of his jump from 128,000 feet below.]

In only a few minutes daredevil Felix Baumgartner will ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon then freefall back down to earth at top speeds estimated near 690 miles per hour.

Damn.

If successful (and we’re all hoping that’s the only outcome), Baumgartner will “become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall,” says Red Bull, “while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement.”
