R.I.P. Vesna Vulovic

I have mentioned this lady every year I have been teaching, as I speak about gravity and terminal velocity. In 1972 a young Serbian stewardess on a Yougoslav airline fell 33,000 feet when the plane was blown up by a bomb. She had no parachute, but survived. She held the record for the highest freefall survival in history.
