Professional daredevil, Felix Baumgartner, plans to jumo from a balloon 22 miles above the surface of the Earth Tuesday, the New York Times reported.
Baumgartner will perform a series of barrel rolls in the upper atmosphere before plunging headfirst at more than 700 miles per hour, the New York Times reported. The free fall will last for almost five and a half minutes until Baumgartner's open his chute a mile above the New Mexico desert.
If the jump is successful, Baumgartner will be the first skydiver to break the sound barrier, the New York Times reported.
More than two dozen high-definition and high-resolution cameras will capture the jump, some will stream live on Tuesday morning a 20 second delay, the Washington Post reported.
Cameras will capture the event from the capsule from which Baumgartner is jumping, his pressure suit, helicopters and ground-based tracking systems, the Washington Post reported.
