Synopsis:
Hans Thirring, a theoretical physicist at the University of Vienna, is skiing down a mountainside wearing attire similar to a layer. The cape, designed by Thirring and called the mantelpiece Thirring, is silk parachute and acts a bit like a parachute to provide your carrier reduced speed while shut down the slopes. But it also offers a lift, so the skier is in his skis lighter, almost weightless. This "flight" somewhat mimics the experience felt by those involved in the relatively new sport of ski-flying (also known as ski jumping), there must be conditions (ie, little wind, compacted snow) demanding to ensure safety . Even under ideal conditions, ski flying is a dangerous sport, especially if the landing is not executed properly.
