    I actually think they are experiencing LOTS of gravity!

    Thanks for posting this — it’s the only way most of us would ever be able to experience something like that.

    Hmmm…Now, someone had to think up doing that. Someone had to be the very first. How did they think it up? How did they get the courage to try it out?

    I am NOT afraid of heights, but now I am hugging the sweet, sweet ground. How I love you, ground…

    Iris, I AM a bit afraid of heights and whileI enjoyed the video, I do love the ground. Exactly what was keeping them from crashing to their deaths? I didn’t have the sound on if it was explained…were the suits somehow responsible for their safety?

    They all have parachutes which they launch. The parachutes used in BASE are generally larger than the parachutes used in skydiving, and are packed in a way that maximises the speed at which the parachute opens. Generally, BASEing is considered very dangerous, and is forbidden in many countries in the worlds. That said, people who start BASEing are typically experienced skydivers who know a lot about stabilizing your body during air flight and are also very good at flying a parachute.

    That’s not weightlessness, in fact , since they are falling, I think it’s exactly the opposite. If anyone wants to experience the closest feeling they can get to weightlessness and still be on earth, try SCUBA diving. Astronauts say it’s the closest feeling possible to walking in space.
