Another Thing I Didn't Know Existed (A Continuing Series)
(Previous member of series here.)
Wingsuit flying/base jumping -- looks like some kind of human flying squirrel.
This sort of thing, like ice golf, would be much easier on Titan.
Graze on over to the SOHO MDI Continuum Latest Image page, then break out your (properly-filtered) equipment for a look. After a couple of very quiet years, the Sun will actually be something other than a blank disk for a while. (Hat tip to David Young of the ASKC, who notes that our PST is "just sitting here in storage" -- members can check it out for 2 weeks at a time. Another reason for locals to join.)
