Yup..

Today, the launch of the Red Bull Stratos capsule had to be stopped at 11:42 a.m. local time in Roswell, New Mexico just before Felix Baumgartner's giant 30 million cubic foot balloon had been fully inflated and made ready for take off. From early morning the team postponed the launch due to strong winds at 700 feet - the balloon's top - waiting for the right weather window to open. The launch was scheduled for 11:40 a.m., the balloon inflation had begun, and then gusty winds picked up and made a launch impossible.
The promo video looks amazing.. I couldn't imagine doing that!

I watched it up until they aborted. Really disappointing. At least they have a back up balloon. Weather doesn't look good for tomorrow. Most likely next week before they get another chance.

I watched it all yesterday. Had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. They would have had to saw off my hands to get me to let go. Amazing to watch.
