Felix Baumgartner 23 mile free fall CG animation

There's a daredevil skydiver who's attempting to break the world's record for a parachute jump which includes being the first human to go faster than the speed of sound without a vehicle. Check out what Felix Baumgartner will be trying later this week. He was scheduled to make the jump today but conditions weren't right. He'll try again either tomorrow or the day after.

Here's the Facebook page for this high flying mission.
