Sir Richard Branson to rappel off Palms tower

Sir Richard Branson has another adventure up his sleeve, this time in Las Vegas.

The British thrill-seeker, who founded Virgin Airlines, loves a challenge, from dangerous transoceanic hot-air balloon races to sitting in a swimming pool in the middle of a hurricane.

Today he plans to rappel 40-some floors off the Palms Fantasy Tower to celebrate his inaugural Virgin America flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas.

Comedy magicians Penn & Teller will emcee the stunt, starting at 6 p.m.

This comes from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
