Skydiver Luke Aikins Sets Record For Highest Jump Without Parachute

Luke Aikins definitely has a solid set of balls. He has just become the first person to jump from a plane, into a net on the ground, without the life saving benefit of a parachute. Crazy!

In a stunt called “Heaven Sent,” the 42-year-old daredevil leaped 25,000 feet to Earth — setting a world record. To accomplish this feat, Aikins had to direct his body in free fall using only the air currents around him to land safely on the high-tech 10,000-square-foot net (about a third the size of a football field) laid out to catch him.
