Ueli Gegenschatz: Extreme Wingsuit Flying

Ueli Gegenschatz takes everything we know about aerodynamics and puts it all into a series of brilliant extreme sports experiences in the pursuit of his dream of human flight. You can view this video and think about lift, drag, thrust, and weight, but chances are you’ll be too busy wishing you were there with him!

Says Gegenschatz: “I believe this is probably the closest possibility to come to the dream of being able to fly.”

Newton’s Second Law of Motion Explained

Newton’s Second Law of Motion is also known as the Law of Acceleration. According to this law, F=ma where F is the force being applied to the object, m is the mass of the object, and a is the acceleration experienced by the object. When all other variables are equal, the greater the force, the greater the acceleration. When all other variables or equal, the greater the mass, the less the acceleration. This explains why greater force is required to move an object with greater mass.   Continue reading
