This photo provided by Red Bull Stratos shows pilot Felix Baumgartner, of Austria, preparing to jump from the capsule during the final manned flight for Red Bull Stratos, Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012. In a giant leap from more than 24 miles up, Baumgartner shattered the sound barrier Sunday while making the highest jump ever — a tumbling, death-defying plunge from a balloon to a safe landing in the New Mexico desert.
