Commando Cody, Sky Marshal of the Universe

Or would the image these days be Buzz Lightyear? These things seem to run in clusters. 10 days ago I reported on an article in Time that looked back at "future" technologies, including Rocket Packs. Now a 45 year old SwissAir pilot, Yves Rossy, has become the first to achieve man-portable jet powered flight. He did cheat a bit, in that he jumped out of an already airborne Pilatus Porter, and seems to have landed via parachute. Oh well, I guess this is One Small Leap For Man...
