"I'm out here getting ready to do something that's never been done before. We're going to jump from 25,000 feet, we're going to do it without a parachute, and we're going to land in this awesomely designed net behind me," Luke Aikins said prior to the jump.
Jumping out of a plane 25,000 feet in the air without a parachute is one of those things you simply shouldn't try at home.
But Aikins, a skydiver, made history Saturday night by becoming the first person to do just that, successfully landing in a giant net far below.
