Product Notes

From rapid heartbeats to short breaths to dilated eyes human beings are born with a fear of falling. And yet for thousands of years we've been diving into danger in an epic quest to overcome our earthbound constraints. In this exhilarating program join host Daniel Wilson as he uncovers the physics biology and technology behind SKYDIVING. At the Zephyrhills drop zone in Florida join a group of first-time jumpers 13000 feet above the ground and witness what it's like to free fall through the air at 120 miles per hour. Next learn about the death-defying art of BASE jumping, a clever acronym for an extreme sport that sees people jumping from buildings antennae spans and earth. Get an inside look at how parachutes-a skydiver's lifeline-actually work and meet the brave test jumpers who put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of new parachute designs. Finally get a firsthand look at specially designed wing suits that allow experienced divers to trade falling for flying and soar like birds through the air. Featuring breathtaking footage fascinating science and expert interviews SKYDIVING unlocks the secrets behind what has driven people for hundreds of years to push the human limits.
