    Joby Ogwyn isn't summiting Mount Everest for the view from the top—he'd rather take it in on his way down. The 39-year-old plans to jump off the world's highest peak and soar to the ground in a nylon wing-suit come May. "This is something I dreamed about as a little kid," he says. "Everything I've done for the last 20 years has been practice for this and now the technology has made flight possible." The death-defying stunt will be broadcast live. Ogwyn previously climbed Everest in just more than 9 hours.
