It will take Baumgartner about 10 minutes to complete the jump, during which he'll break the sound barrier. To achieve the highest-ever free fall, Baumgarten will first be pulled by a helium balloon up to that height in a pressurized capsule. Some 30 camera will document every moment of the fall -- including one from each of his knees.

Baumgartner's first attempt, which drew more than 1 million people on YouTube, was postponed following windy conditions Tuesday.

Red Bull, the official sponsor of the jump, has spent the last five years preparing for the stunt. To promote the jump, Red Bull has shared a slew of pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #Stratos, and has gained more than 400,000 followers on the photo-sharing platform.

The previous record is held by U.S. Air Force Captain Joseph Kittinger, who jumped 102,800 feet in 1960. If Baumgartner's successful, he'll fall from about two miles more than Kittinger did and be the first to break the sound barrier.
