His trajectory defies Physics. Since the "exhaust" was horizontal, in fact pointed up a little, there would be no thrust to keep him from slamming into the floor.

So it's either video magic, or invisible wires. The wires might very well be invisible due to the rotten resolution of the video.

PS, they have done experiments with CO2 fire extinguishers propelling wheeled vehicles, Not near enough thrust to accelerate a human to that fast, even in zero-G.

Video frames are imported into photoshop all the time. With the steady cam quality of the shot, a blind monkey could do the retouching and you wouldn't know.

I've seen this done a different way. The person is jumping and pulling their legs up each jump. But they edit out the frames where the legs are down. Then it looks like they're flying.
