Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner is making his second attempt at the world-record breaking 23-mile freefall from space Sunday morning at 11:15 ET — and you can watch it live right here.

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. To achieve the highest-ever freefall, Baumgartner will first be lifted by a helium balloon up to that height in a pressurized capsule. Thirty cameras — including one from each of his knees — will document every moment of the jump.

Baumgartner’s first attempt at the space jump, which drew more than 1 million people on YouTube, was postponed following windy conditions Tuesday.
