Episode Summary

EDIT
Diving Headfirst Off a Mountain --- National Geographic Magazine September Tablet Edition
AIRED:
BASE jumper Chris McDougall launches himself off a mountain on Canada's Baffin Island, from the cover of the September 2011 tablet edition of National Geographic magazine. The magazine's cover article explores our quest to fly --- from Yves Rossy's wing-suit to rocket-propelled jet packs to personal air vehicles. Also in the tablet edition is a video of orphan elephants in an African sanctuary, an interactive map of Roald Amundsen and Captain Robert Falcon Scott's race to the South Pole in 1911 (along with archival footage from Amundsen's expedition), and a then-and-now interactive comparison of a New Orleans street "portrait" shot in 2006 and then again in 2011. The September tablet edition is available now.moreless
