41 year-old Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner will soon be attempting to free fall from 23 miles up on the outer edges of space back to Earth.
Baumgartner will ride up to to the 120,000 height in a helium balloon then dive out plummeting back to Earth at speeds of up to 690 mph. Check out how he is preparing for this amazing jump in the video after the break.
During the 23 mile jump 15 cameras aboard Stratos will record the adventure with Baumgartner wearing three more on his suit to record the decent.
The cameras will transmit “cinematic footage” in high-def and have been modified to withstand the extreme cold of minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit and low pressures experienced at high altitude with some being sealed in metal canisters filled with nitrogen.
