Dive Into The Unknown With Base Jumper Marshall Miller
Feb 25, 2015
Some people felt that call so strongly that they went ahead and jumped - with a parachute attached, of course. BASE jumping is an extreme sport involving parachuting off an elevated platform (Building, Antenna, Span and/or Earth - hence BASE). It's a bit like skydiving without the plane.
Thanks to GoPro cameras and BASE jumpers like Marshall Miller, now we can experience the Call of the Void safely from our chairs.
Have you ever been standing somewhere really high up and looking down into the deep void below, and suddenly you felt an inexplicable desire to leap into that great unknown? Don't worry, you're not crazy. This is such a commonly experienced feeling that the French have a name for it: "L'appel du Vide," the Call of the Void.
