Watch You Step

Verona Rules is the tallest known cliff in the Solar System. It’s on Miranda, one of the moons of Uranus. Miranda is a small moon with low gravity. If you jumped off the cliff, it would take you about 12 minutes to fall all the way down the 20 km drop. You’d be moving about 200 km/h when you hit bottom, but the landing might be survivable with an adequate airbag system to take up the shock.
