Tony Stark may be a fictional character, but not everything in the “Iron Man” films is completely outside the realm of possibility.

At least that much has been demonstrated by Solar System Express (Sol-X) and Juxtopia LLC, two tech startups that have collaborated to create a real-life “Iron Man” suit, which could be used for skydiving from space. Wow.

Conceived in 2011, the RL Mark VI Space Diving suit would allow thrill-seekers to skydive from up to 62 miles above the earth’s surface — around the edge of space — and land safely, using thrusters instead of a parachute.
