Watch Red Bull Sponsor Its Most Daring Stunt Yet With Us, Live!
Red Bull Stratos, scheduled for this morning, will see Austrian skydiver, Felix Baumgartner, attempt to achieve his dream by becoming the first person to break the speed of sound in freefall. To do this, Baumgartner will step out of a capsule approximately 120,000 feet above the ground. Already delayed by a day, plans for the 23-mile free fall were on hold Tuesday morning due to high winds, but Red Bull officials hope to get the jump in sometime this morning.

Red Bull Stratos is scheduled for 9:30 AM EST this morning, but again could experience further weather delays. When it happens, you'll be able to view a live stream of the jump here:
