    • 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

  • If you look closely at the ball in slow mo right before it went through the weave glove, you can see a tiny tiny glimmer of fire trailing behind the ball. Could it be that the fire came from the shear energy of the ball given it’s speed?

  • So there is this sort of ring of vapor that is trailing just behind the baseball, and it wasn't mentioned in the video as far as I can tell. It is also intriguing that in the previous video when they fired the baseball this vapor ring wasn't present - it must be to do with the air conditions on the day? I also can't find any explanations in the comments - some have acknowledged it as 'Mach waves' or 'seeing the air pressure' but you can't actually see shock waves or expansion waves without using schlieren photography, likewise for pressure changes. This is my best guess to what is causing it: It is a humid day, so the water content of the air is high. As the air curves around the baseball, it reaches a minimum pressure at maximum streamline curvature, which could be towards the rear of the ball. The huge drop in pressure means the amount of water the air can hold reduces, to the point that humidity reaches 100% locally and it is supersaturated. This instantaneously causes water droplets to appear. They can then re-absorb into the air when the pressure returns to normal after the ball has passed. Does anyone have other theories as to what is causing this effect?

    • If you stop the video at about 10:52 (when the ball is directly over the end of the beam) and single step each frame you can see a small red flame trailing the ball well before it hits the glove. Some people theorized the that the ball was coated in oil or wax that somehow ignited and remained lit even as the ball traveled through the air. The explosion was perhaps a mist released from the balls surface at impact, which was then ignited.

  • I hope you see my comment: Hi Destin, I was looking on your 2nd channel the build of the supersonic baseball cannon and I'm really curious to see the schlieren image/effect at the exact moment/point of impact of the baseball on the metal plate with a slow motion fotage. Is the shock wave creating a Vacuum? As well the thing you saw on the footage it could be an implosion the shockwave creating a Vacuum behind the flying/traveling ball by making the air collapse on itself. I hope you see this comment and give it a try, I would totally like to see this. :) If interested I could give more ideas. Best regards Domino60

  • In the part when you see the fire you showed an angle before impact with the glove where it looks like the ball was already on fire and imho it looks like aerodynamic heating is happening look again at your footage and maybe consider firing the cannon at night as a test.
