B Is it possible to double jump in real life?

    I think it is not possible, my friend seems to think if you press hard enough on the atmosphere it will become dense enough to jump on.

    With a person's feet? That's absurd.

    What did I just say? Do I really need to say it again?

    Do a rough sum and show it to him . You have air density and area of bottom of an average foot . How fast would the foot have to be travelling through the air to get any useful lift force ?
