Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner’s plans to skydive from 23 miles above Earth are on hold this morning because of winds in New Mexico, but his team is still hoping he can make the jump. The man known as “Fearless Felix” will be wearing only a pressurized spacesuit and a parachute when he jumps headfirst out of a capsule, hoping to set a new record for the highest and fastest free fall in history.
