It’s not common that I use the words “awesome” and “polluter” in the same sentence, but this is some of the coolest polluting I’ve ever seen! Daredevil pilot Eric Scott flew across the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Colorado yesterday by use of a jet-powered backpack. I repeat: A FRIGIN JET-POWERED BACKPACK!!!! Come on, ya’ll — that’s just sweet!
Scott DID successfully cross the Gorge, but his jet pack burned through two tanks of hydrogen peroxide based fuel in about 33 seconds. Yikes! So while this stunt was pretty incredible, let’s all just cross our fingers that the personal jet-pack doesn’t become the new iPod.
