Go Pro and Erik Roner teamed up for a daring, creating “scientific” folly.
Their objective : being able to float in the sky like Mary Poppins.
The aim was half met (which isn’t that bad after all).
After jumping out of under hot-air ballon with only a very big umbrella over him, he tried to slow down his fall and fly like Mary Poppins.
Needless to say, the umbrella’s cloth gave, but the backup parachute did the rest of the job and brought him back to the ground safely.
When finally arrived back on the ground, he closed with the sentence : “You’re welcome science. NASA is gonna be able to use that one for years to come.”
I doubt that NASA will use the data, but it was a hell of a fun video to watch!
Don’t try this at home, Eric is a professionnal athlete!
In comparisn, here is the original version with Mary Poppins herself!
