OK, this is amazing!

Although, Nik might end up winning a Darwin Award. It is impressive.



Why Evolution Is True

Here’s a video of Nik Wallenda’s 1800-foot tightrope walk across Niagara Falls Friday evening.

Granted, he’s wearing a safety harness, by stipulation of the ABC television network, but it’s pretty amazing nonetheless.  He’s walking at night, and through heavy mist.

From the New York Times:

Some numbers: Mr. Wallenda is 33 years old, a seventh-generation acrobat who first tackled a tightrope at age 2. He crossed 1,800 feet of wire in a little over 25 minutes, ending just after 10:30 p.m. Friday, suspended 200 feet above the gorge and becoming the first person to walk directly over the falls. Five of his forebears have perished performing such stunts.

. . . Afterward, he promised to follow up his exploit with a walk across the Grand Canyon in the next few years.

That should be something, for a Grand Canyon travers has never been done.
