Have you ever thougth about the first parachute jump? Google did. Today (Oct. 22nd, 2013) is the 216th anniversary of the first parachute jump (Oct. 22, 1797). Google honors the inventor of the parachute – André-Jacques Garnerin – with an interactive doodle on the homepage. You can navigate the parachute by using the left an right key.

Garnerin began experiments with early parachutes based on umbrella-shaped devices. The first flight with a silk parachute on October 22, 1797 at Parc Monceau, Paris.
