This time they've got daredevil B.A.S.E. jumper Valery Rozov (who has somehow lived to age 48) making what they're claiming to be the first-ever jump from the mountain at 23,667 feet.
More than two years were spent preparing for the jump, including considerable time and effort devoted to developing a special new wingsuit, a special jumpsuit that shapes the human body into an airfoil, creating lift and, with it, "human flight." Rozov and his team, which included four sherpas as well as photographers and camera crew, spent nearly three weeks in the Himalayas before the jump on May 5.
