Skydiver preparing for 120,000-foot supersonic fall
An Austrian daredevil is planning to become the first person to break the sound barrier in a free fall, without riding in a vehicle.
This summer in New Mexico, Felix Baumgartner hopes to make the highest, longest and fastest fall ever.
His attempt will take him to an altitude where the atmosphere ends and space begins — where blood boils at body temperature, and the air temperature could be as low as minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
