Professional extreme athlete Erik Roner teamed up with Go Pro Camera for a very creative, and dangerous, science experiment. Since the movie Mary Poppins, kids, and secretly adults, have been dreaming of floating down from the skies with an umbrella.
Well Roner finally did. He jumped out of a plane with just a very big umbrella over him to slow down his fall. It worked for a while, but then the cloth gave, and Roner had to use his backup parachute which he was obviously prepared for. All the action was of course caught on GoPro cameras.
When finally back on the ground, he closed with, “You’re welcome science. NASA is gonna be able to use that one for years to come.”
