Skydiver Plans Record-Breaking Supersonic Space Jump

• Space
A skydiver is making progress with plans to leap from near the edge of space in a dive that would break world records and the sound barrier.

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner is a step closer to attempting the feat after a series of recent high-altitude test jumps. He plans to make his ambitious jump attempt later this year.

Starting in the stratosphere at 120,000 feet above the ground, Baumgartner will leap from a capsule suspended by a helium balloon near the boundary of space.
