A daredevil skydiver's record-breaking jump attempt from the edge of space has been called off for today due to bad weather.
Felix Baumgartner, 43, had planned to leap from a balloon at an altitude of 120,000ft (36,576m) in a jump that would see him reach speeds of hundreds of miles an hour, breaking the sound barrier.
The Austrian is hoping to break a record set by Colonel Joe Kittinger, who jumped from an altitude of 102,800ft (31,333m) in 1960.
However, windy weather which had earlier delayed the launch of his 55-storey balloon reared its head again.
The delicate balloon is made of a plastic film thinner than a supermarket shopping bag, and requires calm conditions before it can take off.
