Some eejit is planning to freefall from the edge of space back to earth later today
Felix Baumgartner will be carried 23 miles above the earth suspended beneath a helium balloon 53 storeys high.
Once he reaches the target height he will Freefall back to Earth. The journey up will take around 3-3.5 hrs. The journey down will take around 5-6 minutes – his body will be travelling faster than the speed of sound!
Baumgartner will be wearing a special protective pressure suit which is fitted with cameras to record the fall as it happens
If you don’t suffer from vertigo, you can watch a live feed of the fall . . .
