Would You Ride This Giant Slingshot?

Will this be the start of a new thrill sport? It reminds me of the old "human cannonball" circus attraction. Except with this human projectile, you absolutely must wear a parachute!

Will we soon have competing human slingshots, vying for the most altitude gain for a human "pebble?" G-forces may be the limiting factor.

One very cool stunt would be to ground launch with a giant catapult, then fly off on rocket wings.

Your video here bleeds onto the side bar.

The size og the Bussard video is about the max.

I use 350px max for blogger as it gives some white space.

BTW I'm using Netscape 9.0 (beta)
