Rob Foxx from Connecticut never got a chance to feel the Florida Keys sun on his face, nor the ocean breeze while standing in Key West, even though he always dreamed of it.
He died a year ago on March 3rd of cancer at age 41, and now, a year later, his biker buddies decided they needed to make one last trip with the friend they loved.
“He was 18 years old and mountain climbing when he fell,” Scott Adams, one of his friends, said for FlKeysNews . “He was paralyzed from the waist down. He used to say, ‘I’m not handicapped, I’m just in a wheelchair.’ ”
This accident didn’t stop Robert Eugene Foxx, born Dec. 28, 1975, in Middletown, Ohio, from having a wonderful, fulfilling, active and productive life. His friends say he was adventurous and never feeling down or depressed. They felt like they simply needed to go on this trip with him.

The deck of Changchun Ziyou Bridge was successfully demolished at 04:30 on Wednesday in Changchun City of northeast China's Jilin Province. Based on intricate investigations and calculations, the controlled explosion was designed to demolish only the deck of the bridge. Its pillars remained untouched. The bridge was built in the 1980s and has reached the end of its service life. After the controlled explosion, a new bridge will be built and is expected to open to the public in late October. The new bridge will have a modern appearance inspired by the old model.
A British aerobatic daredevil is thought to have broken a world record for the fastest flight in a wingsuit, gliding through the skies above California at speeds approaching 250mph. Fraser Corsan leapt into the record books during an adventure last week that was five years in the making. But Mr Corsan, 42, missed out on three other records he had long hoped for – the world’s highest wingsuit jump, the longest time flown in a wingsuit and the furthest distance flown, his efforts hamstrung by poor weather. The former aerospace safety engineer jumped out of a plane more than 35,000ft above Davis in California, soaring through the air at 249mph – around the top speed of a Bugatti Veyron supercar. He was going so fast he could see cars “all going backwards” on a motorway – almost five miles directly below him. Mr Corsan, from Salisbury, flew in a custom-made suit – similar to the shape of a flying squirrel – fitted to his body and equipped with an oxygen mask, a GPS and heated gloves to avoid wind burns, braving temperatures as low as minus 80C with the wind chill. If his feat is ratified by Guinness, he will have set a new benchmark for the fastest speed flown in a wingsuit and have become the fastest person in the world to move horizontally without the use of machinery. Describing his record-breaking flight, Mr Corsan said: “I knew I was going very fast. Even after I slowed, I looked at the data afterwards and I was still doing 210mph. I was actually tracking along a motorway and I knew I was going fast because I could see – even though at that point I was probably at about 26,000ft – that I was overtaking cars quite dramatically. “Where I ended up when I got out of the aircraft, I was just off a motorway, so I aligned myself with the motorway and flew directly above it. Normally you wouldn’t be able to judge your speed, but because I was directly above it I could see exactly what was underneath me and I saw they were all going backwards.” His flight also broke two World Air Sports Federation (FAI) records, with his jump from 10,823m (35,509ft) setting a new highest altitude leap for a European, and his freefall flight of 9,741m (31,959ft) before opening his parachute also a new best. But Mr Corsan’s other record attempts were scuppered by bad weather. He said: “I have worked so hard for this, I have trained incredibly hard and brought together a team to make this all possible. It was frustrating, but at the end of the day we’ve come away with a few records.” The attempts were made following years of preparation under a venture called Project Cirrus.
"All the characters were drawn with hand by me, I really have no a clue, but I'd say took 150 hours to do all of this"
A group of daredevils strapped on their parachutes to go base jumping - at Beachy Head. The 16 jumpers, from countries including France and South Africa, headed to the cliff in East Sussex on Sunday. An onlooker said they "flew like birds", before cracking open their parachutes and floating down to the ground. Freelance film maker Jack Adams, who went to video his friends, said one participant even did a back flip off the edge. The 22-year-old sky diver said: "It was just after sun rise, and the sky was nice and golden. "I took photos from the edge of the cliff. "There was lots of mist, and it looked stunning. We couldn't see the beach at one point. "They all lined up, and jumped off. There was a big crack when the parachute opened. "One guy did a huge backflip off the top. To see it off a cliff, followed by a guy opening his parachute, was something else to see. "They all landed safely, because they are all skilled at what they do." Jack, from Lewes, East Sussex, said: "It was absolutely insane, but really cool. "I do sky diving, so I am used to having a parachute on. "But it was really cool to see them fly like a bird for a few seconds, and then open their parachute.

Evidence of the mighty brain power of the octopus has been captured on film after one of the creatures made off with a fisherman's haul. The footage was shot by a BBC camera crew working on the program Super Smart Animals. It shows the moment a huge octopus steals a crab caught up in a trap before making a daring escape. The Giant Pacific Octopus has a huge amount of brain matter, two thirds of which are located in its tentacles. It uses this intelligence to poach crabs, sneaking into traps laid by fishermen. Its intelligence allows it to figure out a way in and then out of the trap. In the BBC's footage, one of the creatures is seen creeping into a trap laid in waters near Vancouver, Canada. It can be seen smothering and consuming its prey, before beating a hasty retreat, leaving only an empty shell in its wake. This is just one example of the incredible intelligence of these invertebrates, which scientists are discovering is far more advanced than we first thought. Octopuses are believed to be highly intelligent, more so than any other kind of invertebrate, but their learning capability is still much debated among biologists. One scientist, speaking to Max Knoblauch from Pacific Standard, suggests that the creatures’ intelligence could evolve much further with time. ‘Cephalopods clearly manipulate objects, they clearly use tools,’ Dr Russell Burke from Hofstra University in New York told the magazine. ‘They don’t build things, aside from shelters, but it’s certainly imaginable that given the time, given some other factors, those kinds of things could happen.’ Octopuses have been known to break out of aquariums and into others in search of food. In April 2016, Inky the octopus escaped from the National Aquarium of New Zealand after the lid to its tank was left open. The invertebrate made the most of the opportunity by crawling out of its enclosure and across the room to a drain, which it used to reach the ocean. Octopuses have even boarded fishing boats and opened holds to eat crabs stored inside. They are the only invertebrate which has been shown to use tools, with some species retrieving discarded coconut shells and reassembling them to use as shelter. In laboratory experiments they can be readily trained to distinguish between different shapes and patterns. In several widely contested studies, they have even been shown to practise observational learning. In some countries, octopuses are on the list of experimental animals on which surgery may not be performed without anaesthesia. British animal testing laws regard them as 'honorary vertebrates', extending them protections not afforded to other invertebrates.
Unbelievable! Man rides drone to deliver game ball at Portuguese Cup final match! 28/05/2017
In 2012 a Saudi Arabian logistics company smashed the record for the 'heaviest item moved by road freight', when it delivered a water desalination unit weighing in excess of 4,800 tonnes and covering more ground than a football field. And over in the UK a power station transformer weighing an earth-shattering 640 tonnes claimed the title for being Britain's heaviest load. After being removed from Didcot power station in 2013 it was loaded on to a truck and slowly hauled along at speeds of 4mph, which caused a 13-mile tailback on the motorway. Meanwhile, in America, when the retired space shuttle Endeavour rolled into its retirement home at the California Science Center in 2012, thousands of spectators turned out to see its creeping procession. The shuttle - which spanned six highway lanes - made stop-and-go progress, with some halts to check its balance on its 160-wheeled carrier. Crew were also on hand to prune trees in its path as it rolled past strip malls, storefronts, apartment buildings and front lawns.

A Frenchman whose hoverboard invention is being considered by the US Army for usage by combat soldiers was spotted flying his super-fast device over a lake in Arizona. Franky Zapata, a former professional jet ski driver, was seen flying his Flyboard Air hoverboard over Lake Havasu earlier this month. In footage of the flight, Zapata is seen hovering dozens of feet above the Lake Havasu beach as onlookers watched the amazing flight. Wearing a protective helmet and flight suit, he zooms past palm trees and over water and sand during the minute-long video. Upon finishing the flight, Zapata lands on a nearby platform and is helped down by a nearby onlooker. It's unclear how Zapata takes off on his hoverboard, as the video starts after his is in the air. There are also no specific details on how Zapata is controlling the Flyboard or what exactly is powering it. But Zapata spent several days in Lake Havasu City testing out his new board during air shows in Sara Park and on a nearby beach, according to Havasu News. Residents of the city came out to watch him soar through the air and do tricks on his futuristic board. The Flyboard Air allows users to fly untethered through the sky to an incredible height of 10,000ft (3,048m), which is almost seven times that of the Empire State Building. The 37-year-old's original Water Flyboards are popular with the likes of Justin Bieber and Kylie Jenner - but his latest invention puts Marty McFly's hoverboard to shame. The device uses an 'Independent Propulsion Unit' to fly for about ten minutes and has a top speed of 93mph (150 km/h), Zapata Racing claims. Zapata is working with the US Army on uses for the Flyboard Air, but details of their collaboration are classified. The former jet skier did say, however, that the plans are to make the boards available to combat soldiers.
Rocket Lab joined the ranks of only a few private companies capable of sending rockets into space, debuting their innovative Electron rocket on Thursday in a long-awaited shakedown mission. However, the rocket fell short of reaching orbit, Rocket Lab said after the test flight. The 17-meter tall, all-composite rocket blasted off at 4:20 UTC from Launch Complex 1 on Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand - powering away from its picturesque sea-side launch pad with nine electric pump-fed rocket engines. Electron's first stage was in action for two and a half minutes before the single-engine second stage took over for nearly five minutes of firing time, dropping the payload fairing as is accelerated toward orbit but eventually coming up short of orbital velocity.
Incredible footage shows engineers rotating a section of enormous overpass as part of a project to merge ten towns into one mega city in central China's Hubei province. Workers and engineers made the section rotate 90 degrees yesterday in just 72 minutes. The elevated bridge is multi-functional, allowing cars, pedestrians and trams to pass through. Video, uploaded by CGTN, China's national broadcaster, showed the experts carrying out the rotation on May 23. The section weighs around 11,000 tonnes and has a length of 100 metres (328 feet) with a width of 24.1 metres (79 feet). It was located on Zuo Miao Road at Donghu New Technology Development Zone in Wuhan City. Wang Wuli, project manager, told Hubei Daily that the rotation speed was operated by computers. Wang explained that the rotation didn't cause any disturbance to traffic or rail travel. Experts took 72 minutes to connect the two sections with a mere one foot gap inbetween which will be filled by concrete mix later on. According to Hubei Daily, the section on Zuo Miao Road plays an important role in the plan of urbanising the mega city.
Swapping the sea for the snow, one extreme windsurfer decided to sail at high speeds down a 5,656 foot mountain. Levi Siver, 36, who fell in love with the ocean as a child in Maui, took to the peaks of Mount Rishiri in Hokkaido, Japan, to pull off the daredevil stunt. Video footage shows the medal-winning sportsman in action, as he skilfully surfs down slopes of fresh powder. There are moments when he flies into the air as he tackles mounds of compact snow. According to Red Bull - who Siver represents as a professional athlete - the stunt marked a world first. The American came up with the idea five years ago and spent months prepping for the adrenaline-pumping descent. Siver used a specially adapted rig with a modified finned base. There were no bindings on the board and Siver wore surf boots instead of sturdier snow gear. Although footage of him looks flawless, it wasn't all plain sailing. It took 20 days of filming to get the footage required during the month of March. Before whizzing down the slopes, he had to complete a two-hour hike battling lows of -13 degrees Celsius. The weather was also very temperamental and Siver often had to wait several hours in a bid to catch the perfect winds. His camera crew would then catch him in action. Describing how it felt to windsurf on the snow, Siver said: 'On the drop in you get the same feeling as when you’re windsurfing. But you’re looking down on a mountain, not the ocean. I got this exhilarating feeling that I can’t even really describe. 'The strongest wind I caught was about 9.3mph.' Siver was born in Idaho, near the snowy slopes of Sun Valley, and as a child he took to skiing and snowboarding. But after moving to the shores of Maui, Hawaii, at the age of 11, Siver’s future calling as a professional windsurfer was sealed. He said his most recent endeavour came about after deciding to marry his two favourite sports, snowboarding and windsurfing. He concluded: 'The idea for this project stemmed from the vision that we could transfer the elements of windsurfing onto a mountain and create the same exhilarating experience the surfer gets on the water. 'I’m always trying to find ways to challenge myself, but this project really sparked my curiosity. 'I wanted to be the first person to try alpine windsurfing on a finned board.'
A scuba diving instructor has captured incredible footage of a monster 14-foot stingray swimming underneath unsuspecting surfers at Bondi Beach. Joe Phillips was watching the sunset at the iconic Sydney beach when his drone captured the amazing footage of the enormous stingray at 5pm on Sunday. The 25-year-old couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the gargantuan ray, which he thought was a rock, swimming underneath surfers just 25 metres from the shore. The monster ray is believed to have been a stingray – the same animal which killed Australian celebrity crocodile hunter Steve Irwin at the age of 44 in Queensland in 2006. Stingrays are often found in shallow coastal waters in mild seas. The stingray has a sharp barb that can produce fatal venom.
In the ever-competitive Instagram holiday-snap battle, a new weapon has emerged. Enter the Biki, a new drone in the form of a bionic fish, which allows users to steer it around underwater and take photos and video footage. The Biki, developed in China and available to pre-order for £420 ($549), can keep its balance in rough water conditions and automatically swerve to avoid obstacles. Within a day of launching on Kickstarter, it exceeded its £20,000 goal, and the makers are currently offering backers a discounted price for the device. Once on sale to the wider public in August, it will be priced at an eye-watering £788 ($1,024). If it loses its way due to a dropped connection, a built-in GPS module makes the Biki automatically return to base. The Biki can swim at 1mph, is equipped with lights to explore dark and hidden areas, and has a 150-degree wide-angle lens. It can operate for up to two hours before the battery drains, at depths of nearly 200 feet.

From teleportation tubes to flying cars, getting from A to B looks like it will be more fun in the future, if science fiction films are to be believed. And some of these futuristic visions are expected to become reality within our lifetimes. To shed light on how we might get around in the year 2050, electronics firm RS Components has created an interactive module that showcases some of the most exciting predictions. Users can input their current age to see in how many years they might be able to travel in a next-generation airliner with panoramic windows, or even take a high speed monorail to work – if all the jobs have not been taken by robots. By 2020, car journeys could be a lot quicker and less frustrating thanks to the use of augmented reality technology in cars, according to the interactive graphic. It’s hoped vehicles will be able to pass information to the driver about traffic conditions, real-time accident alerts and tourist attractions in a less distracting way than present. Information could be beamed onto a windscreen, for example, instead of displayed on a small sat-nav screen. There are also high hopes that modern trains could be replaced by a supersonic Hyperloop in some places. These would comprise pods travelling through tubes at over 700 miles per hour (1,100 kph), making journeys incredibly fast for passengers and freight. In 2025 commuters may be able to catch a hovering Skytran pod to work.
