Apparently there was a lot of preperation with this stunt. And that is a good idea because as you probably know poorly planned stunts make for…(insert joke phrase here).
The stunt took 18 months and a whole lot of careful calculations to pull off – most importantly, a team of researchers had to make sure that the net was perfectly designed to slow Aikins down enough so he that wouldn’t hit the ground, but not break his fall so quickly that it injured him.
Ok that sounds like a reasonable goal to be healthy after right?
Feel free to comment with your ideas on this. Do you think he is awesomesauce or was this completely stupid.
We hope you enjoy the video.
