Now if we had a balance of positive news stories each day like this one, there’s no telling what students and ordinary people might be inspired to do!
Today’s EWC Thought-Leader pushes the edges of possibility way back for all of us!
Meet Yves Rossy, JetMan. Rossy has earned that moniker for his astonishing work with a winged jet pack that enables him to take to the sky with the freedom of a bird.
Upon discovering this man’s work, we were scratching our heads once again: why isn’t the negative 24-hour news cycle celebrating innovators like this? There is barely anything on the web about this leap forward!
But that’s the point of our work here. As you know if you are a regular to this website, Ever Widening Circles is on a mission to propagate the notion that this is still an amazing world.
Every day we bring our growing global community one carefully fact-checked article about extraordinary insight and innovation. Rarely do we get the privilege of bringing you the work of a thought-leader whose work leaves us so speechless.
Today’s innovator is one of those people who must never have heard “it can’t be done”, and we thank both Airborne Films–Jetman (what beautiful work) and XDubai (leading out on the edges) for bringing us some of the Jetman story.
When I saw the video we will point you to first, all I could do was mumble, “What? “How? Why!”
Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.
The marvel of this leap in aviation is incalculable. I’m not sorry to admit that my sense of possibility was expanded by watching this, and that I shed a little tear.
Just imagine the thoughts of those jet pilots flying in formation, watching JetMan and his friend crisscross the sky above them.
I was going to leave it there, but I had so many questions. I’m not sure the following video answered many of them, but the pure wonder and spectacle of this next video creates an entirely different kind of awe.
Take a look at Yves and his partner flying through the landscapes and cities of the Arabian Peninsula.
Questions may race through our minds:
Now, what does this tell us about what is possible in many other fields that need innovation desperately?
What might this mean for personal transportation in the future?
If others knew about this story, how might this improve the mindset of young innovators just starting on their journeys of possibility?
Why aren’t we hearing about this on the 24-hour news cycle?
After writing almost 1,000 articles about innovators like this, it’s apparent that we may have to start spreading the word from right here, right now. Let your friends know Ever Widening Circles is here, and a great source of positive news has come to the web!
