Adrenaline Rush: The Science of Risk is a 2002 American IMAX documentary film that captures the world of skydiving and base-jumping. Breath-taking imagery of the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert, the Fjords of Norway, and various bridges and buildings around the world gives the viewer a glimpse into the eyes of the risk takers. Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen are two jumpers chronicled in the film. They attempt to recreate a parachute designed in the 1500's by Leonardo da Vinci in order to better understand human flight. Their success as skydivers is world-renowned, as Adrian holds a world record for the longest unassisted human flight. With cameras strapped directly to Adrian and Katarina, the spectacular imagery from thousands of feet in the air is captured on high-quality IMAX film. As an epic finale, the filmmakers jumped off of a 4,265 foot cliff.
