(Newser) – Nick Macomber climbed 45 stories to the roof of Denver's Four Seasons Hotel at sunrise yesterday and jumped—with a jetpack. The jetpack pilot, who carried the Olympic torch in flight for London's 2012 Olympic Games, flew around for almost 30 seconds before touching back down on the top of the hotel, KUSA and FOX 13 report. The flight was performed for the Smithsonian Channel, which is filming a documentary "that explores the past, present, and future of jetpacks on land, in space, and over water," KUSA notes.
