Just another day in the hood.
It could be the next big thing in extreme sports – 'drone-diving'. Daredevil skydiver Ingus Augstkalns was lifted 1,082 feet (330 meters) into the air by a 28-propeller drone, dropped and parachuted safely back to the earth. Although the feat makes for an entertaining spectacle, Aerones, the creator of the massive drone, foresees the unmanned aerial vehicle being used in rescue missions. 'In the near future, our technology will save human lives, will help fight fires and carry out other challenging and significant work,' said Jānis Putrāms, chief engineer of Aerones and a pilot of the drone. 'With this project, we show that we are ready for serious tasks in the field of civil defense and sports. Lativa-based Aerones, which is a drone manufacture focused on developing these devices with high lifting power, conducted their secret 'drone diving' operation in an isolated part of the Baltic state. Preparation for the jump lasted six months and during that time, the team increased the payload up to 440 pounds (200kg) and conducted a number of tests, including flights carrying Augstkalns over the river Daugava. The super-powered drone measures 34 feet (3.2sqm), boasts 16 rotors and weighs 154 pounds (70 kilograms). The incredible video of the 'drone-dive' shows the drone taking off from a body of water and head towards a communication tower, which stands 393 feet (120 meter) tall, where Augstkalns was waiting at the top. Augstkalns grabbed a long handle hanging from the drone, which took him off the platform and into the air. Once the drone reached 1,082 feet (330 meters), he let go and fell to the earth for a about one second before releasing a parachute. 'Emotions are fantastic. Both feeling how easily and quickly the drone lifted me, and because Latvia proves itself in innovations of technology,' Augstkalns said. 'It is obvious that we will experience an increasingly important use of drone in our everyday life.' 'Definitely also my friend skydivers all over the world will be excited about these opportunities.' The same drone was used in January to debut 'drone-boarding' by towing snowboarders at high speed across a frozen Latvian lake. A video shared by the firm showed a snowboarder test out the drone at an abandoned airbase. The man was towed away with ease and is seen gliding through the snow, with the giant quadcopter controlling the pace. Aerones's massive drone cost $37,000 (35,000 euros) to build and for now, flight times are restricted to around 10 minutes using on-board batteries. In theory the top speed is around 95 miles per hour (150 kilometers per hour), but piloting becomes difficult at that velocity, so drone-boarding and drone-diving daredevils have to make do with speeds of around 37 miles per hour (60 kph).
The age of your car could be the difference between life and death, experts warn, as drivers are encouraged to upgrade to newer models. Confronting images of a car-to-car crash test between a 1998 Toyota Corolla and its 2015 counterpart reveal how far safety technology has come in the last 20 years. The driver of the older car was four times more likely to have died while the other driver would have received only minor injuries, research by Australia and New Zealand's independent vehicle safety advocate, ANCAP shows. The test highlights the important role newer vehicles play in improving road safety. 'It is concerning the rate of fatal crashes is four times higher for older vehicles than for new vehicles,' said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, James Goodwin. 'We've been tracking the average age of a vehicle involved in a fatal crash, and in just one year we've seen that average increase from 12.5 years to 12.9 years. This highlights the need for a renewed national focus and greater support for safer vehicles.' While cars built in 2000 or earlier make up just 20 per cent of the registered vehicles on the road, they're involved in about one third of fatal crashes. In comparison, newer cars, built between 2011 and 2016, which make up 31 per cent of vehicles on the road are involved in 13 per cent of fatality crashes. The most at-risk drivers tend to drive older, less safe cars. 'It is unfortunate we tend to see our most at-risk drivers – the young and inexperienced, as well as the elderly and more frail – in the most at-risk vehicles,' Mr Goodwin said. 'We hope this test promotes a conversation to encourage all motorists to consider the safety of their car,' Mr Goodwin said. The car-to-car crash test, which replicates a head-on crash, was conducted at 64km/h. 'The older car sustained catastrophic structural failure with dummy readings showing an extremely high risk of serious head, chest and leg injury to the driver. It achieved a score of just 0.40 out of 16 points – zero stars.' 'In contrast, the current model performed very well with a five star level of protection offered, scoring 12.93 out of 16 points,' said Mr Goodwin.

SpaceX has completed the first static fire test of the Falcon Heavy’s center core, bringing the ‘world’s most powerful rocket’ a step closer to its maiden launch. The firm has teased the megarocket since 2013, but after several delays, CEO Elon Musk said earlier this year that it will finally be ready for lift-off late this summer. New footage shared on Twitter suggests SpaceX is now on track for the debut of its highly-anticipated rocket, which will launch with the thrust of eighteen 747 aircraft. ‘First static fire test of a Falcon Heavy center core completed at our McGregor, TX rocket development facility last week,’ SpaceX tweeted. The 18-second clip shows billows of white and black smoke pouring out from below. When completed, the Falcon Heavy will be equipped with three cores, making for a total of 27 Merlin engines to generate 5.13 million pounds of thrust at lift-off. According to SpaceX, it will be able to carry more than 140,000 pounds of payload to low-Earth orbit, making it the ‘most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two.’ The Falcon Heavy rocket was originally slated to fly in 2013, but faced several challenges that forced the firm to push back the date of its debut. Now, it’s expected to fly late this summer, Musk said in a conference following the successful launch of a re-used Falcon 9 rocket in March, revealing the difficulties they’d faced along the way. ‘At first it sounded easy. We'll just take two first stages and use them as strap-on boosters,’ Musk said. 'It was actually shockingly difficult to go from single core to a triple-core vehicle.' Earlier this year, Musk revealed SpaceX will send two private paying customers beyond the moon in 2018. The mission will use one of SpaceX's Dragon capsules, which will be modified to allow communications in deep space, launched atop a Falcon Heavy rocket. Previously, Elon Musk had said he was ‘planning to send Dragon to Mars as soon as 2018.’ But, the firm later admitted it won’t make that date, and is instead aiming for 2020. SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell revealed the timeline at a press briefing for the company's recent launch from NASA's historic launch pad 39A. 'We were focused on 2018, but we felt like we needed to put more resources and focus more heavily on our crew program and our Falcon Heavy program,' she said. 'So we're looking more in the 2020 timeframe for that.' Red Dragon is a precursor for SpaceX's ambitious Mars plans, which company founder Elon Musk unveiled at the International Astronautical Congress in Mexico in September.

The world is on edge as North Korea threatens America with a nuclear attack, and many are imagining the unthinkable. However, if you are half-a-mile from the epicenter of the explosion, it is possible to survive a nuclear blast. "It's what you do in the first 5 to 10 minutes after a bomb goes off that's going to save your life," radiation safety expert Andy Karam told Inside Edition. If you can get inside and put 20 to 30 feet between you and the fallout, the distance will keep you safe.

Most tourists soak up the ancient beauty of Petra on foot, navigating the dusty pathways traversed by thousands of travellers over the years - including Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - at a relaxed pace. But one daredevil base jumper decided to view the Unesco World Heritage Site in Jordan from a different perspective and swoop down from the towering cliffs above. Heart-pounding video footage shows the moment Miles Daisher, 48, from Georgia, flung himself off an outcrop in front of the famed 131-foot-high Treasury building. Before performing the potentially-fatal stunt, he is seen taking a deep breath and pausing for a moment. He then launches himself forward. A helper holds a guide rope behind Daisher until he disappears from view. The adrenaline junkie is filmed hurtling at high speed between a red rock chasm, which is just 100 feet wide. Daisher's parachute opens after a few heart-stopping seconds, causing his speed to gradually slow. At one point he is forced backwards and he gets dangerously close to the red rock walls. But his stunt rounds out without a hitch and he gracefully hovers down to the ground. He touches down perfectly in front of the Treasury's world-famous doorway - all in under 15 seconds. Immediately on landing he lets out a scream of relief. Daisher said he wanted to mark his 4,300th base jump by pushing himself to the limit. He journeyed to the Jordan desert and hiked up a mountain for two hours before the jump. He later said of the nerve-racking feat: 'This was the lowest base jump I’ve done over land and one of the most challenging to date. 'It took all of the jumps that I have done since the beginning to prepare me for this one.' Along with base jumping, Daisher is an avid skydiver and he has performed 7,200 plane jumps over the years.
Toyota has set the record for the world's fastest SUV as a modified Land Cruiser hit speeds of 230 miles per hour (370km/h). The turbocharged vehicle rocketed along a 2.5 mile (4km) California runway to beat the previous record of 211 miles per hour (340km/h). Dubbed the 'Land Speed Cruiser' by the daredevil team, the SUV underwent a myriad of modifications to get it up to pace. The custom-built, 2,000-horsepower Cruiser had two turbochargers added to its regular 381hp, 5.7L V8 engine to increase its power output five-fold. Alongside several other engine modifications, the SUV had wider tires and reduced suspension to boost its top speed. It took former NASCAR driver Carl Edwards just two attempts to break the SUV land speed record. Modifications to the car's volleyball-sized turbochargers allowed the racer to add 19 miles per hour (30km/h) to his first attempt. He only slowed down because he had run out of usable pavement - with enough track ahead, the Cruiser could be expected to go even faster. Test driver Craig Stanton said adjustments to the vehicle added stability at the SUV's terrifying top speeds and gave the car unbelievable acceleration. 'I wanted the Land Speed Cruiser to provide the confidence you need, as a driver, to keep pushing even when the world around you becomes a high speed blur,' he said. 'We made some setup adjustments, and it not only accelerates and shifts more smoothly, but it also has enhanced stability.' The record attempt was made at Mojave Air and Space Port in Mojave, California. In addition to being one of the few places in the US where supersonic flight is allowed, it features a two-and-a-half-mile paved runway. Mr Edwards said: 'At 225 mph, the thing was wandering a little bit. All I could think was that Craig said, "No matter what, just keep your foot in it," and we got 230 mph. 'It's safe to say that this is the fastest SUV on the planet.' While Toyota may have claimed the overall title, Bentley still holds the record for the fastest unmodified production SUV, having reached 187mph (301kph) on a test track prior to its release in September 2015.

A Chinese wife who attempted suicide outside her 15th-storey home has been saved by a courageous firefighter who risked his life tiptoeing across a tiny ledge. The firefighter, unidentified, reached and grabbed the woman after walking along the ledge that's only four inches wide, according to a video posted by People's Daily on Twitter. The incident occurred on the morning of May 6 in a residential compound in Anhui, eastern China. The woman had argued with her husband before climbing out of her 15th-storey home and threatening suicide, said Xinhua News Agency. She was sitting on a beam more than 150 feet above the ground and constantly crying when the fire brigade arrived at the scene. The firefighters put an air mattress on the ground before sending an officer to try reaching the woman by walking across the ledge next to her. In order not to be detected by the woman, the firefighter had to tiptoe while walking across the ledge, which is around four inches (10cm) wide. After the officer managed to move near the woman, he quickly held her from behind while his colleagues tried to pull the woman into her home from the balcony. The woman was brought to safety by the firefighter and his colleagues.
There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled. However, it’s not just our outside appearance that will change – our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS. And with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging. Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Mars’ gravitational pull is only 38% of Earth’s, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Mars’ low gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height. However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads. Whatever happens in the next 1,000 years — whether we merge with machines or become them — one thing is certain: The human race is always changing — and the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.

A brave pilot was forced to battle against the winds while attempting to land his plane as gale-force conditions battered Cornwall. Footage from Land's End airport shows the tiny aircraft being tossed from side to side before eventually bumping down on the runway. During the tricky manouevre the plane approaches the runway at a perilous tilt with the wings banking dangerously up and down. The gale-force winds also made for choppy sea conditions with footage showing a yachtsman battling the elements during a heavy storm. It is known as a side-slip landing and is used by skilled pilots to land in extremely windy conditions. The videos were filmed yesterday as extreme gusts battered much of Cornwall causing travel chaos as ferries were cancelled and roads blocked by fallen trees. At the harbour in Newlyn in Cornwall, a sailor was forced to navigate tricky conditions as his vessel nearly hit a wall. Strong, gusting winds and short, choppy seas created testing conditions with the yachtsman seen strapping everything down to battle the storm.

As world record attempts go it may strike many as plane bonkers. But a British driver has accelerated into the Guinness Book of Records by successfully towing a 285-tonne Airbus A380 superjumbo - the biggest passenger aeroplane on the planet – using a standard Porsche Cayenne sports utility vehicle (SUV). And that was after the UK Porsche team behind the record-breaking attempt drove the car – more usually seen on school runs - from London to Paris to carry out the feat. The German 4X4 , driven by Porsche GB technician Richard Payne, towed the giant Air France double-decker aircraft over a distance of 42-metres at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, to set a new Guinness World Records title for ‘Heaviest aircraft pull by a production car’. It beat the previous record by a margin of 115-tonnes. The new Guinness World Records title was set by a 157mph Cayenne S Diesel costing £66,767 whose 4.1litre V8 engine produced 385hp of pulling power – the equivalent of around four Ford Fiestas. The exercise was then repeated using a 176mph Porsche Cayenne Turbo S costing £121,550. A far cry from towing the standard caravan, trailer or horse-box, the Porsche Cayenne was connected to the Airbus A380 via a special attachment that sat on the vehicle’s standard tow bar. Slowly but surely as Porsche’s Mr Payne pressed down on the accelerator, the Cayenne carefully pulled away with the giant passenger plane edging forward inch by inch behind it and then gradually picking up the pace as both car and aircraft gained in momentum. Mr Payne, a technician at Porsche GB, who drove the record breaking car said: ‘It did it – I’m so relieved! We don’t usually go this far to test the limits of our cars but I think today we got pretty close. I could tell that it was working hard but the Cayenne didn’t complain and just got on with it. My mirrors were quite full of Airbus, which was interesting. ‘Our cars can go a bit beyond what our customers might expect – they’re designed to be tough. But even so, what the Cayenne did today was remarkable. ‘We drove the car here from London – and I plan to drive it home again, having towed an A380 in between.’ But while the attempt was primarily a British achievement, Mr Payne also praised colleagues at his parent company in Southern Germany. He said: ‘Credit should go to the team in Stuttgart who developed the car – they did a thorough job. I’m also very grateful to Air France and its engineers for their generosity in allowing me to tow their beautiful aircraft’. The project was carried using one of Air France’s fleet of ten A380 aircraft and the airline’s 60,000 square metre state-of-the-art engineering hangar which is big enough to house one superjumbo or 3,000 Porsche Cayennes. The hangar is usually home to all the engineering and maintenance activity for the Air France fleet. Pravin Patel, adjudicator, Guinness World Records said: ‘I’ve verified some amazing record attempts during my time as a Guinness World Records adjudicator – watching a Porsche Cayenne tow one of the largest aircraft in the world definitely ranks as among the most spectacular. My congratulations go out to all those involved in achieving this remarkable feat.’ Porsche said: ‘In accordance with the rules applied by Guinness World Records, the test was overseen by independent engineers. After the record was set, performance testing and scrutiny of every major component and electronic system on the vehicle was carried out in order to provide certification that the car was to production standard.’ Gery Mortreux, executive vice president Air France Industries said: ‘It was an honour to host Porsche at our hangar at Charles de Gaulle. It is usually home to our engineers working on our fleet of 10 Airbus A380 – one of the most sophisticated aircraft in the world. It was fun and exciting to watch the two machines together – our engineers were intrigued and impressed. Congratulations to Porsche on a remarkable achievement.’ ‘It shows the passion we put on every challenge we take. Like Porsche, we thrive on excellence and pushing engineering boundaries.’ The previous world record, broken by the Porsche Cayenne, was set in August 2013 when an unmodified Nissan Patrol pulled an Russian Ilyushin Il-76 cargo plane weighing 170.9 tonnes inclusive of fuel, at Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
