Why is it
That in Sci Fi, when someone falls but doesn't hit the ground they can stop just before hitting the ground and live? What I mean is, if someone stops suddenly they should still feel like they would if they just hit the ground. After all it's not stopping that kills you, it's the rapid deceleration (or negative acceleration if you prefer).
Think on this a minute. If anti-grav tech is going to save you it will be because you stopped slowly, not just avoided hitting the ground.
Don't let your guts fall out people.
