  1. For some reason and i don’t know why can’t seem to feel like that is actually fast. I mean we have cars that can easily get to 200+, we’ve made a plane, i believe the X-15 that made it to mach 6.70 (about 7,200km/h). The space shuttle moves at 28,000 km/h at altitudes between 304 and 528 km. The apollo 13 mission at some point made it to around 24,000 miles an hour. It’s hard to fathom something that is 32.38 times faster than the that plane.

  2. I was just watching a guy make mud bricks in the woods. Somehow we figured out how to make that thing. Amazing.

  3. You can’t tell from the GIF that it actually does break the speed of sound. Vapor cones don’t necessarily mean that it’s flying supersonic.

  4. “Oh wow here it comes. I can’t even really see i-”


    “Holy shit that was awesome!”



  5. Maverick: Requesting permission for flyby.
    Air Boss Johnson: That’s a negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.
    Goose: No. No, Mav, this is not a good idea.
    Maverick: Sorry Goose, but it’s time to buzz the tower.

  6. I think this was one of the first videos I ever saw on the internet. The sonic boom argument is still raging on, I see.
