Oh God, I so want to do this. Can you imagine skydiving from orbit? I've actually had a recurring dream about this for years.

I'd love to see how these would be tested if they got them working... No real way other than to see if you can beat death.


Sign me up when they've completed it though ^^

Its not possible to skydive from space, one, you would get burnt to crap, 2 you would be under so much pressure you would be crushed and 3, well, youd probably die as the oxygen gets sucked from your lungs

So what are you saying that video is a fake or the claim at the start of the thread is bollocks?
Also you wouldn't be crushed from all the pressure as space is the total opposite, there is no pressure in a vacuum.

Fantastic vid Phazey. Anyone know what the music is playing over it?

It's Boards of Canada - Dayvan Cowboy. And it seems to be partly a video of this.

Edit: to clarify, this is actually their music video for that track, rather than just some random thing someone's made.

The pilot was fine, despite having left the plane at three times the speed of sound.

I saw the magazine cover in Borders on Monday and thought that looks fooking mint, but assumed it was more an artist's rendition of a possible concept, which the picture might be?

And Bugz is your first victim! Although a word of advice, no need to bring lube because when he gets an eye on papa cho's supprise he'll shit himself.
