Baumgartner, an Austrian helicopter pilot, hopes to break four world records: Highest-altitude freefall, highest manned balloon flight, longest distance travelled in freefall and fastest freefall.

His previous records include lowest parachute jump, 95ft off the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, and highest jump from a building -- 1,479ft from the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

In 2003 he also became the first person to skydive across the English Channel.

Engineers have spent more than two years refining the suit which will keep him alive in temperatures of -70c.

The current altitude record was set by U.S. Air Force colonel Joe Kittinger, who jumped from a balloon at 102,800ft in 1960. Commercial airliners typically cruise at 35,000ft.
