    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.

    Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

      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 , Jeremy Fielding, Trent, and David. I realize most people who support Smarter Every Day don't do it for "transactional" reasons, (ie, supporting Smarter Every Day to get stuff). People usually support because they understand what I'm trying to do here and are of good will. 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 and hopefully this will enable more of this. 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.

      The "return" was a sonic boom

    14. Azha F

      That vacuum cannon sound when it shoots the baseball is really intimidating and something i could imagine coming up from a sci-fi movie [EDIT] 18:40 replay button so i can comeback listening to this menacing creation

    22. David S

      Yeah, but how does it work with traditional potatoes? Nice flat trajectory. Imagine what would happen if Voyager hit a baseball.

    23. realvanman1

      Did you ever figure out where the vacuum leak was? The valve seal? Seemed to start leaking when the tank pressure came up. Maybe fix that seal and crank 'er up to the full 1,000 psi and you can break Mach 2!!

    24. Keeva Grace

      Poggers for God....

    30. Matthew Cotton

      CAT

    31. Levi C.

      Wait so normally a baseball throw has noticeable backspin. Obviously, in this case, the ball’s linear velocity is so great that it would barely have time to rotate, but what would happen if the backspin from a regular pitch remained proportional to this insane speed?

    32. Mark Durham

      And not 1 "hold my beer".

    33. GAMER ORION

      Love your videos🥰

    34. Ronald Rodriguez

      That is basically how most asteroids 'banished' after hitting earth at high velocity.

    39. Hayden Rain

      your units are so comically quaint! how many puffins per league is it going?

    40. Benoit Dery

      What's the music during the build montage?

    41. Vlieger

      Now, can we elevate this incredible beauty 90 degrees and find out how high a Mach 1.3 baseball will go?

    42. Travis Edrington

      Did anyone else notice the distortions of air causing a shadow on the backstop at 20:10?

    43. Cesar Galicia

      Why am I excited about this. I don't know? Looks fun

    44. Eto Hige Gamer Culture

      I'm thinking no way it can get crazier then the bat machine.....O_O the ball is gone and was supersonic O_O

    45. CosmicMicron

    46. Lyman Thomson

      Can you shoot a potatoe out of the canon?

    47. tommy karrick

      I love the fact that the baseball just vaporizes on impact, amazing

    48. Screaming Rowlet

      "Disolves everything out touches

    49. rpdrennen1

      I love the video. You are building and doing what many of us have wondered about. Keep it up!

    50. David S

      We're from the ATF and we're here to help. If you guys sold some of those, you would make your money back pretty dern fast. I'd buy one and mount it in the bed of my F-350 like the "Rat Patrol".

    55. Hazell K

      Boys having fun. This is why i love the countryside, you just get the space you need for anything

    56. donny Matteson

      burning question how does the front tank seal off to keep a vacuum ?

    57. Andrew Lang

      If a major league pitcher threw this fast, he made several visits to Balco...

    58. 휴애

      20:00 CHINA VIRUS

    59. Yash

      Hit bulletproof glass with a metal ball using this super sonic cannon plz

    60. G.U.N.S Inc.

      they made a mini tank/Big Big gun

    61. Davie Dood

      The bending he captured, I think is from the gases that came out the front.. It created the cone, but the part he caught doesn't seem to be the absolute peak of it. If he moved the camera to the right a little, he could see the cone press even more, and the back end of the cone, come together and pinch off. He caught the ripple effect of that back end pinch. Again, this is what it SEEMS.

    62. Israelite Tribe of Judah

      It's like an AR15 gas system

    63. Doug Daubenmire

      I have always loved your channel but this posting broke the memory pleasure barrier. I have 5 boys and 2 girls, all now adults and it's been years since i've heard a thrill giggle like those from you (adults?) on this video. It took me back to when my children were 12 and under. God bless all of you. Thank you!

    64. Jaden Dean

      it looks like a friking sniper

    65. Guy Christmas

      Looks like a blast to build! Hehe Punt intended

    69. Sean Lindeborg

      anyone else see them aiming near the telephone/power lines for first shot and cringe 😬😅

    70. Pax

      So ashamed that none of you quoted Oppenheimer , perfect moment when you saw the shockwave ..

    71. Thomas Kincaid

      Coming to this week, a new weapon? No baseballs, supersonic baseballs

    72. Tirnadi

    73. Foehn Gallet

      Woooooo.... This sounds like Destin is into the idea of a UBI. This sounds like socialism. I'm excited x) Now I hope the subject will hit the No Dumb Questions podcast. The sound of that cannon is amazing by the way. I wonder what it's like in person. Good luck Destin.
