The Velocity Channel is carrying live Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking free fall from the stratosphere. The daredevil Austrian is presently being lofted by a weather balloon to 120,000 (~23 miles) feet above the New Mexico desert, from which distance he will jump from the specially-designed capsule and free fall 115,000 feet, breaking the sound barrier in the process.
