In a culmination of years of work by the Red Bull Stratos team, including the testing of new equipment, invention of whole new skydiving gear and multiple practice runs — Felix Baumgartner is about to attempt to jump from the edge of space and land safely on the ground.
Discovery News is covering the event, closely partnering with the Discovery Channel, but the Telegraph has posted this animated video showcasing what the process will entail. It's riveting. Think of it as a teaser for the real jump, which is scheduled to take place in just under 30 minutes. via Telegraph
