Description:

This is an online game recreating the longest ever (at that point in time) freefall jump by Air Force Captain Joe Kittinger. Learners will be briefed on when they should deploy each parachute in order to be successful. If they deploy either at the wrong time, the game explains what went wrong and what the outcome is. This is a good game to explain drag, friction and the different layers of the atmosphere.
