Interesting Invention - The Parachute

Leonardo Da Vinci has been proved right, over 500 years after he sketched the design for the first parachute.

(A British man, Adrian Nicholas, dropped from a hot air balloon 3,000 metres (10,000 feet) above the ground, after ignoring expert advice that the canvas and wood contraption would not fly.

I love it when 'experts' are proved wrong!)
