Watch Felix Baumgartner free fall jump live from the edge of space (over 120,000 feet in altitude) this morning. Click on the video for current updates. 

The only man to achieve a similar feat was U.S. Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger in 1960, whose record still stands (as of this minute). He will be aiding Baumgartner in today’s jump. 

UPDATE: The jump was aborted this day due to high winds.According to Red Bull Stratos on Facebook, the next attempt window will be Sunday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 a.m. MDT.
