If all goes according to plan, at least 34 skydivers will jump out of a plane and free-fall past the summit of Mount Everest Thursday. The jumps will be the first ever attempted at Everest. Remarked the jump’s organizer, “This will be the most important event in the Himalayan adventure since 1953.”
