Space Jump Live Coverage: All System Go, Countdown Resumes

Gizmodo: Today seems like a good day to jump from 120,000 feet in Roswell. Right now, the weather forecast is good for launch at 11:00am EDT. Felix Baumgartner is going to try to reach the edge of space and then fall back to New Mexico.

If successful, he's going to become the first man in history to go supersonic without any mechanical propulsion aid whatsoever.

We are covering the event live.
