Dawn light begins to show over the balloon capsule in Roswell, N.M., prior to the inflation of the balloon that will lift Felix Baumgartner to an altitude of 120,000 feet, from which he plans to make a record-breaking skydive Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012. Baumgartner, 43, will attempt to break the speed of sound with his own body in a death-defying 23-mile free fall – an altitude chosen to enable him to achieve Mach 1 – which will deliver scientific data to the aerospace community about human survival from high altitudes.
