Skydiver's world record attempt postponed
Fournier's project manager would not give the media any specific reason(s) why the jump was postponed.
The capsule was taken back into a hangar late Monday morning after the attempt was called off, The Canadian Press reported.
The cancellation marks the third time in 15 years Fournier has had to call off a jump attempt.
Earlier, there were reports the launch crew was concerned about wind speeds at the site, and the balloon launch was moved from a scheduled 6 a.m. lift off, to 10 a.m. before being cancelled outright.
Fournier had travelled to Canada to make the 40-kilometre free fall jump from the Earth's stratosphere after officials in his home country said the jump was too risky.
