Tony Hawk. Success story

If you don’t know Tony Hawke, you probably have never been interested in skateboarding. After all, it was with him that this sport gained the greatest popularity. Tony was the first to submit to the 900 trick – two and a half turns in the air with landing in the opposite direction. The price of this trick, according to him, was a broken shoulder, more than 20 concussions and about 13 years of preparation. Hawke made it in 1999 at the age of 31, and then repeated it twice: at 43 and at 48!

Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying

Probably, it seems to you that to rise above the peaks of Elbrus on a bunch of balloons is a completely insane undertaking? It seems right to you. But to find out exactly how crazy this idea is, only one person decided in our country. Along the way, setting a world record, which is still not beaten by anyone, and perhaps forever remains unattainable.
Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying
In total, Vitaly Kulikov made two flights. The first took place on September 25, 2004. On 360 balls pumped with hydrogen, the pilot climbed to a height of 400 m and flew 8.5 km in 25 minutes

When Muscovite Vitaly Kulikov flew into the sky 14 years ago, and then, rising to a record height, he went downstairs – though, barely surviving and raising the Ministry of Emergencies and the police to his feet – many wrote and even talked about this event on television . But then the journalists were mainly interested in the dramatic ups and downs of the flight itself and the subsequent rescue operation. We decided to recall those events in order to talk about the technology of such a seemingly not too high-tech project. But should there be tricks here?

Completely nonsense balls Continue reading
