UPDATE 14 October 2012 11:30pm. Felix Baumgartner is now again attempting to be the first man to jump from the edge of space and freefall to earth at supersonic speed.
10/10, 8AM: The mission was aborted on Tuesday evening, Singapore time, due to high winds. A new bid could be made later this week, a spokeswoman said, but everything depends on the weather.
“Today’s launch has been aborted… due to wind gusts making an attempt too risky,” read a statement on the Red Bull Stratos mission’s website.
