Solving the Rubik's Cube in 60 seconds may not seem like a big deal. In fact, it is painfully slow considering that 15-year-old world record holder Collin Burns can complete it in a mere 5.25 seconds. However, figuring out the Cube during a free fall jump certainly takes some skill not to mention a lot of courage. That is why skydiver Chris Walker's recent accomplishment is pretty amazing!

In the video posted on YouTube, the daredevil leaps off an airplane from what appears to be a pretty high altitude. He then calmly solves the puzzle as if he has all the time in the world. When done, he casually opens up his parachute and glides back to earth.

Though Walker is the latest to complete the feat while free-falling, he is not the first or the fastest one. In 2010, the Dresden, Germany resident Ludwig Fichte managed to finish the task in a speedy quick 31.5 seconds while sitting inside a free-falling rubber dinghy! What will people think of next?
