Science Nerds gone crazy over the impossible Skyscraper poster jump
On February 2 , Dwayne Johnson shared his new action-thriller movie skyscraper poster. The poster shows 45 year old actor jumping from the crane to another building which has an open window. the content it beyond the truth which is breaking every law of physics and mathematics.
Thus, the science nerds aren’t able to digest it so intenet is having fun in their own way. As several fans have pointed out, it seems incredibly unlikely that The Rock would make it out of that jump alive — and in fact, several even did the math to prove he’s a goner.
I’ve mocked up some parabolas for The Rock’s SKYSCRAPER jump. Red is assuming he jumped up a bit first; green assuming he ran forward and somehow didn’t lose momentum; yellow for a sort of squat-thrust thing.
Whichever you choose, rest in peace The Rock, as you are dead now. pic.twitter.com/cAytzrWMRW

I’ve thought long and hard about this, applying everything I know about science to bring you the definitive answer: if he just catches the leg of the K, he can use his momentum and the velocity in which he is travelling to allyoop into the window.

So I did some science.
Assuming that there is no “jump-off” (which seems to be optimal here)
We can determine that the Rock would need to leave the platform at 12.7 meters per second (appr. 28.4 mph)
For comparison, Usain Bolt’s fastest recorded speed is 27.4 mph. pic.twitter.com/GruWcbtEAN

You’re assuming he’s jumping from right to left. Maybe he’s been blown out of the building by an explosion and is about to be impaled on some crane. pic.twitter.com/eN5RkqdlXS

There, he’s made it. Cake and grief counseling will be available at the conclusion of the movie. pic.twitter.com/JlYfu0od1Q
