Daredevil to Skydive Without a Parachute, or a Wingsuit
— Ace

He'll be, um, "free-diving," I guess-- he'll be aiming for a net, and I know some people are now saying "Oh what a cheater, a net is perfectly capable of stopping a fall," but come on, that's still pretty wild.

29 >>> At terminal velocity? I doubt it. Posted by: rickb223 TEXIT at July 2 not true. the key to surviving a fall is just to slow down in stages. The "net" will probably be a series of nets stacked over each other, each net designed to breakaway under a certain amount of force. the nets will slow the guy by 20mph per hit, until he's down to a survivable speed. I've looked up all the people who have survived falls from airplanes without parachutes. The trick is just to hit *several* things before the ground.

40 there was a world war two airman shot down over berlin, I think, who fell to the earth without a parachute from a height of around 14,000 feet or so. he crashed through the glass roof of a train station, then hit the ground. It was the glass which slowed his fall about halfway (before shattering) that then allowed him to survive the fall with just a broken leg and some cracked ribs. look it up -- cool stuff.

61 >>>Wouldn't you still break lots of bones hitting a net at terminal velocity? not if it breaks away after arresting only a certain amount of force or perhaps its on a quick decelerator rig you know, like hollywood stuntmen use when the fall. The decelerators let them free fall for the shot, then they start slowing the fall little by little. actually that must be the way they'r doing it -- a net, but then the ten or so guywires of the net are all on decelerator rigs.

65 I dunno. Terminal velocity is what- about 124 MPH. I think it's possible to slow him down safely. But my worry would be hitting the target. Wind gusts and conditions can make that difficult.

Posted by: Marcus T at July 29, 2016 11:24 AM (lBMUe)

66 Terminal velocity in atmosphere (at sea level?) is 120 mph. So Hollywood stunt men jumping off of tall buildings will reach. . . ok, I don't know how fast they will be going becuase that takes math, and calculus. So I don't know how high the building has to be to reach 120 mph, but it doesn't matter because 120 mph is as fast as you can go in atmosphere. . . ok maybe you can go faster head down instead of spread eagle. . . But the point is, you don't want to go out in hurricane force winds where the wind is 120 mph because the wind will pick you up and slam you into solid objects at 120 mph. Or propel solid objects like coconuts at you at 120 mph or more, which would hurt. And I have this idea about a boy and his dog. Okay a girl and her horse, ok maybe a human boy and an ET, ok maybe an ET and a terrestrial dog. ok, never mind.

68 >>>58 So a puff of wind comes up and suddenly, the net is no longer beneath him, but rather is somewhere over there. it's not as bad as you think. once you're above say 1000 feet, you might as well be at 20,000, because you can't fall faster than 120 mph or whatever. But point is, the longer the fall, the more *time* you have. So if he gets blown off course, well, he's got a significant amount of time to glide back on to course.

71 The landing target, which has been described as similar to a fishing trawler net, has been tested repeatedly using dummies. One of those 200-pound (91-kilogram) dummies didn't bounce out. It crashed right through. "That was not a good thing to see," recalled Jimmy Smith, the veteran Hollywood public relations man who, with his partner Bobby Ware, sold Fox on the idea of having someone skydive without a parachute. There's some lovely understatement. Okay so he's aiming for a net that's 20 stories up to allow him to go to the bottom and then get not flung out. So it's still batshit insane but at least they've done some logistics. If it's 20 stories up, can't they have a secondary net underneath what for the crashy crashy through?

It's one of those stunts that you should be able to get away with once or twice. As a career move, though, keep your will up to date.

77 Nearby, a pair of huge cranes defines the boundaries where the net in which Aikins expects to land is being erected. It will be about one-third the size of a football field and 20 stories high, providing enough space to cushion his fall, he says, without allowing him to bounce out of it. The landing target, which has been described as similar to a fishing trawler net, has been tested repeatedly using dummies. One of those 200-pound (91-kilogram) dummies didn't bounce out.

88 The terminal velocity of a human is about 120 mph, give or take. You can slow it down somewhat by some tricks. So his "net" needs to be able to safely catch him and arrest a 120 mph speed.

  Remember the sky diver from near orbit, the guy trying to reproduce, oh what was his name, Kittinger, that did free falls from way up in a balloon. Anyway, he was going to try to go supersonic in free fall and break all of Kittenger's records (Project Manhigh, space program precursor).

199 Reminds me of the Airborne / Marine exchange program joke. A Marine who was scheduled to make his first jump out of a plane was in the bathroom sweating and obviously nervous when two Airborne guys walked in. They looked at the Marine and said ' I thought you guys were supposed to be the toughest bravest of any of us. Why are you so afraid of jumping out of a little old plane. After you pull your parachute cord you just float down to earth' The Marine looked up obviously relieved and said ' we get to use parachutes?'

213 There is or was a sky diving center at Zepherhills Florida and we went over to watch. It was interesting to see them coming back down. They want to land as close to their gear bag as they can because they don't want to walk any futher than necessary. It was quite common to hear 'heads up', and you would look up to see someone about to land on top of you, and you would have to step aside. In one case, two guys walking suddenly saw feet at eye level, almost walking into them. There were words exchanged about watch where you are walking, and look out for falling sky divers. Anyway, there was a story about a female, experienced sky diver, who, just days before had a chute that would not open. She screamed all the way down, and died on impact or shortly after.

   Now, re-entry at orbital speed of 17 kmph or so is gonna be a problem. I'll give him a rocket pack to slow down.... Or maybe, a re-entry suit.

    I wonder if that could be done. I mean feasible.

311 "A single human, "jumps" from LEO, deorbits, re-enters, and free falls down to a parachute landing." --------------- Starship Troopers (I think). They do a combat drop from deep space. Each trooper in a re-entry shell. In real life Peggy Whitsom, returning from six months in command of the internation space station said, "I saw ten g," on re-entry. Seems that the angle at which the capsule returns is critical. Two shallow you might not return at all, or be thousands of miles off target. Too steep and the decelleration is too high, or you burn up. Ten g was not the intended track.

319 I looked it up, it's called "space diving". It's only a concept so far. Baumgartner didn't even get above the stratosphere, actually. So no human has jumped higher than the stratosphere.

    NASA looked at the concept for emergency escape techniques, but decided velocity would just be too high.

  There is some outfit that is actually looking at designing a space diving suit. The goal is to jump from actual "edge of space". It will not be at orbital speed or anything.

    That will likely not happen for quite a while.

381 Joe Hallenbeck: "Don't agree with anyone voting for Hillary but I can cut Perino the smallest of a small break." Clinton's offenses against the Bushes are infinitely longer than Trump's. Perino gets no quarter for even hinting at implying a vote for Hilarity! She was of The Borg as the Bush family is all about big government. Clinton is Big Government. She has more affinity because she's from Big Government. Trump much less so. Could be personal animus, but she's not very astute if she thinks Trump has been more hostile than the Clintons to her former boss.

401 There is the concept of the "re-entry window". Imagine the vertical, radial to the earth, as 90 degrees. Tangent is 0 degrees. The re-entry window is between 6.9 and 5.5 degrees (at least for the Shuttle). Shallower and you "bounce off". Steeper and the heat is too much and you burn up.

    Apollo did a little tricky maneuver. They came in, slowed down, then pulled up and did a "ballistic coast" outside of atmosphere, losing much of the velocity, then arced back down for a final entry at a much steeper angle.

     This maneuver was critical for success.

423 would someone actually object to him jumping out of a plane without a parachute & not aiming for a net. Because there is a word for that suicide

Posted by: datechguy at July 29, 2016 01:16 PM (O7xEM)

424 During WWII, the Soviets formed a parachute unit even though they had no parachutes. That did not stop them. They tried dropping guys who hung on to mattresses, which, sadly did not work. They also tried getting their guys to crawl out on the wing and drop them all at once in big snowdrifts or on the sides of hills. Surprisingly, some survived. No, this is not a joke but demonstrates how desperate the Soviets were during the Nazi invasion. However, any guy who jumps out of an airplane without a parachute, survives the fall, and then goes on the attack is nobody you want to mess with.

Posted by: Tantor at July 29, 2016 01:19 PM (g0aRc)

425 I saw something on TV where a guy jumped from a plane, through a hole in the roof of a large building, onto a trampoline. The hole looked to be 5-6 feet across. So this is not a first, unless the one I saw was a fake. And there was a guy who jumped into a huge pile of empty cardboard boxes wearing only a wing-suit. I had no idea until now what a pussy he really was. /s Then there's the story of a B-17 tail gunner whose chute was either blown out of the plane or otherwise useless, and as the flames from the main part of the plane swept back toward him, decided he didn't want to be burned alive, and jumped - landing in a deep mountain snowbank and walking away. Or the WW I pilot who jumped sans chute and landed on a barrage balloon. Just laid there relaxing until they pulled the balloon down and the ground crew got a real surprise.
