Skydiver gets ready for bid to break sound barrier

ROSWELL, New Mexico (AP) - The team working with an extreme athlete who hopes to become the first skydiver to break the sound barrier is inflating the balloon that is designed to lift him to the stratosphere. Mr Felix Baumgartner has donned his high-tech pressurised suit and is on board a 1,360kg capsule that will be lifted by the balloon near Roswell, New Mexico. The former Austrian paratrooper's jump was postponed twice last week because of high winds. Mission control officials said the 850,000 cu m balloon will be fully inflated by 1600 GMT (12am, Singapore time), when the three-hour ascent is expected to begin.
