Felix Baumgartner jump live video, Red Bull Stratos free fall today

The Austrian daredevil known as "Fearless Felix" will once again try to shatter a few world records today -- with a jump from the edge of space!

Felix Baumgartner hopes to try again today for the jump from 120-thousand feet up -- that's about 23 miles.

This video from the Red Bull Stratos team shows Baumgartner on a previous practice jump.

If the weather cooperates, he'll climb to the edge of the stratosphere in a special balloon-lifted capsule, then make the jump wearing only a pressure suit.

Success would mean the highest free jump ever, and possibly the first time a human breaks the sound barrier while *outside* a vehicle.

 

 Baumgartner planned to make the dive last week, but an unexpected wind gust destroyed his balloon before it could lift off.

He has a spare balloon for today's launch.
