On February 4, 1912, Franz Reichelt jumped to his death from the tower during initial testing of his wearable parachute.
Also in 1911, Grant Morton made the first parachute jump from an airplane, a Wright Model B piloted by Phil Parmalee, at Venice Beach, California.
As a safety measure, four straps ran from the ends of the rods to a waist belt, marked improvement over another folio (189v), which depicts a man trying to break the force of his fall by the means of two long cloth streamers fastened to two bars which he grips with his hands.
According to the historian of technology Lynn White, these conical and pyramidal designs, much more elaborate than early artistic jumps with rigid parasols in Asia, mark the origin of "the parachute as we know it." The Venetian polymath and inventor Fausto Veranzio (1551–1617) examined da Vinci's parachute sketch and kept the square frame but replaced the canopy with a bulging sail-like piece of cloth that he came to realize decelerates a fall more effectively.
A now-famous depiction of a parachute that he dubbed Homo Volans (Flying Man), showing a man parachuting from a tower, presumably St Mark's Campanile in Venice, appeared in his book on mechanics, Machinae Novae ("New Machines", published in 1615 or 1616), alongside a number of other devices and technical concepts.
Em êxodo , diz: “As primícias dos frutos da tua terra trarás à Casa do Senhor, teu Deus.” No Velho testamento , Deus ordenou ao seu povo que dedicasse os primeiros e melhores frutos de suas colheitas ao Senhor.

The puppet's weight was 75 kg; the parachute's weight was 21 kg.
The cables between puppet and the parachute were 9 m long.
Here, the scale of the parachute is in a more favorable proportion to the weight of the jumper.
Leonardo's canopy was held open by a square wooden frame, which alters the shape of the parachute from conical to pyramidal.
A parachute is a device used to slow the motion of an object through an atmosphere by creating drag (or in the case of ram-air parachutes, aerodynamic lift).
