Jetpacks Go Mainstream

Capable of 30 minutes of flight at around 60 miles per hour, the Martin Jetpack can apparently go as high as 8,000 feet in the air. Naturally, its creator has equipped the device with an integrated ballistic parachute, just in case something goes wrong with its engine while you’re flying around. You certainly wouldn’t want that machine to stop working on you while you look like a minuscule dot to people on the ground.

  1. At the point of failure, you are better off with enough altitude for a parachute to work. The most dangerous point is closer to the ground – high enough that a fall can kill you, and low enough that a parachute does not have time to work.

      • Hi. I don't put www. in front of every web address meaning that I must be accessing a different internet – I only put http:// This must mean that I'm not on the world wide web – which in turn means that I can't be bigoted for wanting users to speak the same language that everyone else on this website would just so happen to be speaking.

        P.S. Try just going to google.com sometime, or aol.com without putting a WWW.! I swear, you get a whole different website! omg!

        • Awesome,
          I love the laughs i get from people with so much entitlement and so000o much ignorance.

          Keep the entertainment alive i say!

          ha ha ha ha.

    • Your English (grammar) is atrocious ! Use the letter "a" before a consonant. and use "an" before a vowel.

      For grammar dummies that means: an English>not a English tool.
