NIAGARA FALLS - Aerospace engineer Julian Sharpe is so confident in the disaster-proof pod he has invented that he is willing to test it by going over Niagara Falls.

"I'm aware there are huge restrictions, and it may not even be possible, in which case we would be looking for an alternative waterfall," said Sharpe, 50, a British inventor who now lives in the United States.

Niagara Falls is the preferred site for Sharpe's pod, which is built for people to survive natural disasters.
