Skydiver Prepares to Break the Sound Barrier

I written about this guy before, Felix Baumgartner. He's pretty much the baddest dude on the planet when it comes to jumping out of airplanes. He also does a lot of BASE jumping - like when you jump off a building or say the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil. I wrote about Baumgartner when he glided 22 miles, with a pair of what looked like jet wings attached to his back, clear across the English Channel. Wicked cool. This time around Baumgartner has his sights set on a couple of records -- the highest jump at an astounding 120,000 feet, and the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall.
