Some of you may already be watching, but there is a lunatic Austrian called Felix Baumgartner who is currently floating up in to space.

He plans to reach an altitude of more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and then jump. He will break numerous records including the highest jump, longest free fall, fastest speed ever achieved by a human with no engine propulsion.

He will accelerate from 0mph to around 690 mph in less than 40 seconds.

You can watch it live on youtube:

He has parachutes which he can deploy - but yes it could definitely end in tragedy.

Haha, I hope there goes nothing wrong. Will this video also come on Youtube for later?

So it looks like he broke three records, but missed out on the longest free fall one. Official data to come later.

So he managed to break another record yesterday: the most watched live stream - with over 8 million viewers.

I've updated the video in the first post with the mission highlights.
