  • RT published this video item, entitled “British Marines test out a jetpack in the open sea” – below is their description.

    British Royal Marines have been testing actual, real jetpacks by flying between speeding boats at sea.

    Video shows a marine flying from a launch onto a larger Royal Navy vessel.

    The jetpacks are developed by Gravity Industries, who claim they can fly at speeds of up to 80mph (128kmph) and climb to 12,000 feet (3,657 meters) – roughly equivalent to the highest mountains in Spain and New Zealand.

    It’s not quite Iron Man but it’s a start.
