I don’t know anything more about this than it looks like someone made a human catapult. After launch the projectile-sapien springs a parachute and glides to safety. I bet this was in Australia – [via] – Link.

    This is one of the most wonderful posts I’ve seen in a while.

    The launch in this video took place September 24 at Brignoles (southern France). The original article is at a French sport parachute magazine site, PARAMAG.

    I’ve translated the synopsis of the article at my site, (shameless self promotion, I know, but it is just the coolest thing I’ve seen) and will update with a full translation tonight.
