It just feels like a really bad idea, getting launched into the air by a catapult.

We understand that adrenaline junkies out there need to get their fix somehow but surely there's slightly safer alternatives? Bungee jumping for instance?

There is just such a feeling of dread as you watch this base jumper settle into this specially designed 'catapult' and wait to be launched into the air. Something's going to go wrong. Something HAS to go wrong doesn't it? 

Amazingly, it all goes according to plan. Although there is a moment, after he's stopped travelling 200kph into the sky and begins to almost just hover in the sky for a split second that you start to worry that his parachute won't open.
