Our cover story this week takes a dive into the world of Elliana Grace Hentoff-Killian, St. Louis' very own Human Cannonball.

At twenty years old, she became the youngest Human Cannonball in Ringling Bros. history. And she was practically born in the circus ring: She performed her first trick when she was six months old. Her mother is a founding member of Big Apple Circus and St. Louis-based Circus Flora and is currently the director of Circus Harmony at the City Museum.

What's it like to fly through the air?

Check out the videos below.

Here's a Ringling Bros. video with cannonball footage at the end.

And here's a video of Grace at Circus Harmony in St. Louis.
