Sky diver to break sound barrier with jump from edge of space
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]


It is the ultimate in parachute jumps: from the edge of space, Felix Baumgartner will leap from a balloon, plummeting to the ground 120,000 feet below.
After 35 seconds he will break the sound barrier, and finally, at 5,000 feet he will deploy a parachute and – hopefully – land safely on the ground.
During his 10-minute journey to earth the Austrian will travel at more than 690 miles per hour inside a special suit, which must protect him from temperatures as low as -94 degrees F.

and how is he going to achieve this speed, without powered freefall?

The atmosphere is very thin that high. He will get some good speed.

It's been done: Project Excelsior and Project Manhigh

Three Bribes for the Democrats sneaky and sly,
Seven for the Bankers in their halls of gold,
Nine for Labor Unions sucking us dry,
One for the Liar Chief leaving us cold
In Washington D.C. where politicians lie.

One Bill to rule them all, One Bill to find them,
One Bill to bring them all and in the debt-ness bind them
In Washington D.C. where politicians lie.

 Quoting: jenzie


exactly...

since free fall speed is 32 ft per sec ^2 and terminal velocity is about 120 mph and as he falls he will actually be slowing as the atmosphere gets thicker as he descends.

I seriously doubt he will reach anywhere close to the sound barrier with gravity as the only source of energy.

This isn't to belittle the achievement, just to keep it in perspective.
