Around the Thanksgiving holiday, a group of 50 BASE jumpers, slackliners, and other daredevils built a giant pentagonal hammock some 400 feet above the desert near Moab, Utah. Entitled the “Mothership Space Net Penthouse,” the hammock served as a platform for BASE jumpers and a destination for slackliners, who walked up to 262 feet along lines tethering the hammock to surrounding cliffs. And of course, the hammock offered a stunning (and terrifying) view of the Utah desert. The “Mothership Space Net Penthouse” was conceived by Andy Lewis and was installed for one day.
