Austrian daredevil and skydiver Felix Baumgartner hopes to make the highest jump in history today, while attempting to be the first skydiver to break the speed of sound. From space! Millions are watching via youtube and social media is buzzing.

Amazing. Since social media is fully involved here, of course there is some internet snark.

Heh. Twitchy will monitor and update with further reports.

Update: Wow! Felix himself is tweeting his jump?

Tweets from space? Or are they? Account not verified and was set up earlier this month with this tweet.

More photos and reactions from those watching.

Update: Jump proceeding, even with technical issues.

World record broken.

Anticipation continues to build. Everyone’s thoughts and prayers are with Felix!

Here we go!

His (or his parody account’s) last tweet before his jump.

CNN has broken away from live feed until Felix has safely landed.

Update: He does it! History is made and the world was watching, together, via the power of social media.

Update: More from the unverified Felix Twitter account; this was retweeted after landing.

Congratulations, Felix. You made history today!
