Suspended 400 feet above rugged desert terrain, this massive aerial space net, dubbed the "Mothership Space Net Penthouse," is not for the faint of heart.
"It wasn’t until just a few weeks ago that I thought the pentagon idea was actually possible," explains Lewis. "I calculated the approximate size I wanted the net to be (about 2000 square feet) and acquired the proper materials to build it. This took a few years as well considering that every piece involved needed to be extremely strong, redundant and therefore expensive. Since the moment the last of the pieces arrived on my doorstep I’ve literally had help every step of the way to complete this truly monstrous project."
Hand-weaving and rigging up such a massive structure takes a lot of work, but thanks to a communal effort, a team of 50 hard-working highliners, BASE jumpers and other volunteers were able to pull it off in just three days.
