Today on Google's home pages worldwide is a logo for the first parachute jump that took place 216 years ago today, on October 22, 1797.

French aeronaut André-Jacques Garnerin was the first to jump out of a gondola with a silk parachute at Parc Monceau, Paris. It was from a height of about 3,000 feet.

Google has this awesome interactive doodle that lets you control the jump and land where you'd like.

Here is a video of the jump:
