Watch Felix Baumgartner make his second attempt at the world-record breaking 22-mile supersonic freefall from the edge of space Sunday morning at 11:15 ET.
After a 3-hour ascent to 120,000 feet, it will take Baumgartner about 10 minutes to complete the space jump, during which he’ll break the sound barrier.

Thirty cameras — including one from each of his knees — will document every moment of the jump.
