There Are Dare Devils,

and then along comes Luke Aikins,

who takes the term to a new level, as if jumping out of an aeroplane at 25,000 feet is not enough he plans to do that but with one major piece of equipment missing, a parachute! yes you read that correctly, no parachute, main or backup, just some oxygen to breath, at 25,000 feet there is not a lot of it about,

but he has a cunning plan, as he leaves the aircraft he will be looking for this, a special net about one-third the size of a football field and 20 stories high, he will free fall for just 126 seconds,

and there are no prizes for guessing what will be the outcome if he misses! Luke Aikins’ historic jump will be broadcast on live TV by the Fox network as part of an hour-long TV special called “Heaven Sent.” So be sure to tune in at 8 pm. EDT (5 pm PDT), I am to scared to watch, and for those that missed it, all was well.
