Extreme Sport of the Future: Space Diving

What blends the exhilaration of skydiving with the wonder of spaceflight? Space Diving. What is it? Thrill seekers take note: It entails jumping off a rocket ship with a parachute at an altitude of 120,000 feet or more.

Space activist Rick Tumlinson's latest venture is in the early planning stages, along with a sister endeavor Orbital Outfitters.

  1. Oh, cool. Sounds like 'Orbital Sky-diving' from Star Trek. Remember? B'Elanna Torres was into that.

  2. That must have been Deep Space Nine. I didn't follow it as closely as the others, but yeah, sounds like the same idea.

    Another example of life imitating art. LOL
