Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner hopes to make a second attempt to become the world's first supersonic skydiver with a 23-mile free fall over New Mexico on Sunday or Monday.
Preparations for extreme athlete and skydiver Felix Baumgartner to make a death-defying 23-mile free fall into the southeastern New Mexico desert are on hold Tuesday morning due to winds, but his team is hopeful the winds will die down and he'll still make the jump.
Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner made final preparations Tuesday for a death-defying, 23-mile free fall into the New Mexico desert, hoping to become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier.
Baumgartner is disappointed "like the rest of us" but taking a couple of days of critical downtime, his high-performance athletic trainer, Andy Walshe, said Wednesday.
During the ascent, Walshe said, the team will have views from a number of cameras, including one focused directly on Baumgartner's face.
