First I'd like to thank Keeps for sponsoring this video. https://keeps.com/emplemon I've also included a list of references/links in the description if you'd like to learn more about this topic. I must admit that there will certainly be record-holders I have missed. I tried my best, but information before 1950 is quite spotty and hard to find. There could easily be documentation of other record-holders tucked away in an obscure newspaper or book, and maybe in time we will find them. For now, this is the only comprehensive list of the world's highest jump. Prior to making this video I could not find one that covered before Joe Kittinger. Hope you guys enjoy! Edit: I apologize to my metric viewers for using imperial units, but two-thirds of my audience is from the US, and I felt that including the conversions for so many numbers would make everything a visual mess. For this one you'll have to bare with me and divide by 3.

The Visual Cliff experiment actually found that infants that were just learning to crawl would crawl over the "cliff" with no fear, but after the babies had about a month of crawling experience they wouldn't cross the "cliff" anymore. This probably means that we aren't innately afraid of heights but that we learn to be afraid of heights as we figure out how to travers our environments and make mistakes like trying to crawl down stairs or other drops.

Rebuttal to 1:16- Your status & wealth makes it easier for you to receive formal falling training and prior medical wellness procedures on your body, granting you better odds. Your athleticism can reduce the damage you receive on impact. Your intellect will likely affect how you try to take your fall, to make for a favorable experience.

I know it's a bummer to think about, but it does give some educational info to look at the people who jumped out of the twin towers as the fires ripped through the building on 9/11. Some of them jumped from over 1000 feet up. So sad to think about it again 😞

Greetings from Lemmon South Dakota! Just thought I would chime in with a thanks for the interesting Video. I have come home to Lemmon after many years out and about working in the Dakota's as a police officer. Now that I am disabled and pretty much sit on my but with a computer on my lap ingesting all that I can find of interest to pass these long days that God keeps piling on my plate I find it good to try and learn something new daily. I recently lost my lovely wife of 51 years and 4 days to add to my loneliness, also both my sisters passed last year of Cancer, (also took my wife damn disease!) anything that sparks my interest is a Godsend to help me keep going. My goal is to see my Grandsons graduate College before joining my family in, well, where ever we happen to end up after death, be it a void, or heaven or be it hell. Just thought you might be interested in the fact that there is a town that shares your name, if not the spelling, at least the sound. Our city was named for GE Lemmon a rancher who started the town here on the State Line. He had a long history as a cowboy, he hunted bison for the railroad as it made it's way West through this area and it was because of his close relation to the Railroad that his town was formed. The railroad needed a place for drawing water for the steam Engines, and this spot on the prairie was chosen GE urged businesses to come here to start up, and a town was formed. At one time our population was over 20,000 but now has dwindled down to about 1,500 by most estimates. Still a neat little spot on the prairie with a lot of history having taken place in the area. A wonderful place to retire if you love 4 seasons, not so much if you fear the cold.

Little bit about the US Army and their original paratrooper programs. The US Forest Service had experimented with using parachute equipped hotshots prior the the Army's interest. The Smokejumper program, or at least what it would later become the smokejumpers, trained the first paratrooopers and instructors.
