    • idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

But You guys believe that the earth, having a gas pressurized atmosphere, is rotating at 1600 km/h while it is hurled around the sun at an AVERAGE (!) velocity of 107 000 km/ in the solar system which is moving at 800 0000 km/h in a to nature, abhoring vacuum of space ! Try experimenting with that! 🤣😂

  • Actually, I'm very surprised the baseballs didn't disintegrate due to the frictional force of air resistance. Time to break out the high speed schlieren setup. [edit update] I just discovered they already did. (World's Fastest Pitch - Supersonic Baseball Cannon) Good job guys!

  • 10:52, pause it. What is that orange dot behind the baseball, encapsulated by the vapor wave? If you go to 9:47 it's not there from the prior glove experiment. Is that orange dot possibly the fire we saw once it ripped through the basketweave glove? Is it possible for a small flame to exist in that pressure zone at that speed?

  • Trust me, that basket weave glove is not strong I’ve had some bad experiences with them

  • If you wanna catch the ball, you could try to redirect the 1000 mph force by moving the glove. My idea is a machine that rotates an axis parallel to the ground at around 1000 mph in the direction that the ball is being shot. Depending on how you mount the glove, you can try to actually make the glove go faster than the ball and try to catch it out of the air as opposed to absorbing the force. This method might produce more friction and therefor fire if you're into that. This might be a hard stunt to pull off but you could collaborate with the SlowMoGuys because they did a video on the syncing technology of plane propellers and machine guns from WW2 planes. Be sure to test the machine with an axis end pointing towards you and good luck trying to secure the baseballs gloves!

  • I have a hypothesis for the fire that came from the contact of the ball, My thinking is with the supersonic forces being transferred to a small surface area that quickly made the stitching react violently to the friction between the affected leather and the static leather that was stitched. so when the ball hit the netting of the glove the increased friction on the stitches caused them to create enough heat energy to start deteriorating in a quick violent fashion. Compressed oxygen in the pocket of the glove could aid in this reaction from the mach cone.
