    First Human Supersonic Space Jump

    Today seems like a good day to jump from 120,000 feet in Roswell. Right now, the weather forecast is good for launch at 11:00am EDT. Felix Baumgartner is going to try to reach the edge of space and then fall back to New Mexico.

    If successful, he's going to become the first man in history to go supersonic without any mechanical propulsion aid whatsoever.

    I love how the scientists have no idea what will happen when he hits the sound barrier. They are like " we think he will live, not sure:dontknow:"
