The project is called Red Bull Stratos and features Austrian stuntman Felix Baumgartner, who will jump from 120,000 feet, or roughly 23 miles above the Earth. The coordinators of the project believe that Baumgartner may even become the first space diver to break the sound barrier. The jumper will travel to the edge of space powered by an air balloon carrying a tiny capsule vehicle.
