    I have been wanting to build this thing as long as I understood the physics of how it all works. A super big thanks to David Linderman, Jeremy Fielding, Trent, and David Woodall (the welder).
    I realize most people who support Smarter Every Day don't do it for "transactional" reasons, (ie, I'll support Smarter Every Day to get stuff). I also realized that there is often a mental hurdle that must be crossed before support on Patreon starts. My thought is that I'd really like to give folks a baseball, and it might provide enough momentum to get over that initial hurdle. I signed the first shipment of baseballs I received, but I only have so many of those. There's no implication that my signature is worth anything.... it's just kind of what you do with baseballs... it's a tradition. After a certain number, it will transition to unsigned baseballs. I've got enough signed baseballs to over all existing Patrons, and many more, but I will wait a month or so to see how many I need to get, then I'll order the second batch. I like to support jobs and pay people for what they're good at. The machinists and welders who made the parts in this video for example. The whole intent here is to diversify away from solely being ad sponsored so I don't have to answer to anyone but myself and Patrons with respect to the types of content I choose to make. Thank you for understanding what I'm doing here, and even if you decide not to kick in at www.patreon.com/smartereveryday , I'm super grateful you took the time to watch this video!
    Thank you very much,
    Destin

    When I was younger, my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripken Jr. and Nolan Ryan en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Ryan
    Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

I want you to get in a huge enough area that you can let the ball really fly. And get a sound recording of what it sounds like going past a microphone.

I think that you could get the shot of the ball flying to the target with one of that device that is used to track the path of the tank rounds

Now we need to know what kind of range you can get out of a baseball launched with that much force and velocity! The cover definitely takes a hit. It would be interesting to find out how the aerodynamics are impacted.

16:44 I think the second wave that opposed the first one was the supersonic speed that caused the air around the baseball to collapse in on itself and create the shockwave. This video is truly a work of art!

I’m an oilfield engineer and have been doing this type of work for over a decade. I’m just wondering why the men in my field work with over 10K psi everyday without steel barrier why is it so important for 750 psi
