Fearless Felix lifted into the air for supersonic skydive from space - LIVE

Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner has begun his ascent to the edge of space in his attempt to become the world's first supersonic skydiver with a 23-mile free fall over New Mexico.
His team said the weather appeared favourable as his team began unpacking his 30-million cubic foot helium balloon that will hoist a 3,000-pound capsule carrying him 23 miles up into the sky.
He is hoping to become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier by jumping from a capsule floated more than 120,000 feet into the stratosphere by an ultra-thin, 55-story helium balloon.

Why Oh Why could this not have been a British Paratrooper :-?
I feel your pain, but it was still a magnificent performance. Well done Felix!
