Pot Watch a record breaking skydive from 120,000 ft live

A DAREDEVIL will skydive from SPACE to become the first human to break the sound barrier unaided by a vehicle today.

Felix Baumgartner, 43, will jump out of a balloon at more than 120,000ft.

In the near vacuum at that altitude he should accelerate beyond about 690mph within 40 seconds.

If all goes well, he will open a parachute near the ground to land softly in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico, ten minutes later.

Won't be the first time something has crashed into the desert of Roswell at 690mph.

Let's be honest, they really should just give him a couple of valium and rig up a robot to shove him out once the baloon gets high enough.

He need to pre-breathe for an hour and a half to stop himself getting decompression sickness. He's started apparently so they're definitely getting ready to go.
