Watch Felix Baumgartner jump from space, live

Felix Baumgartner is one hell of a crazy guy. Currently, he’s ascending into the edge of the atmosphere, in an attempt to jump from it. It’s so high up, we can practically call it space. Will he do it? Well, no going back now, as he’s already 70,000 feet up!

You can watch the whole event live from the video above, he’s been climbing for over an hour now.
