  • Favorite line: "Bob's gonna die" . If you enjoyed this video it would be awesome if you sent it to your friends with a good 'ol fashioned text message. Also, A HUGE thanks to Guardian Bikes for helping me source bikes during the bike shortage. If you've tried to buy a bicycle recently you know the shortage is real. If you'd like to get one for a kid you love, here's the link: . We were able to secure a few shipping containers of bicycles, so please take advantage of that while they're still available! We've been working HARD to make sure we could get bicycles for you this Christmas. Also, a huge thank you to everyone who supports Smarter Every Day on Patreon. If you'd like an SED/Trash Pandas baseball I ship one to literally everyone who supports as a Patron. Here's that link if you're interested: Thank you so much for watching this video! Destin

    • I would assume the fire would be caused by air compression kind of like when you have a fire piston to create a ember on the end of a piece of cloth the air couldn't move away fast enough out of the pocket of the glove and the ball thus causing it to ignite the air

  • If you goto a few frames before the ball enters the basket weave glove, there is a small red flame following the ball, from what or where though is the real question. Could be from the ball compressing the air enough and being heated up by the friction inside the barrel enough to ignite the compressed oxygen?

  • Ummm i knew that leather starts/gets fire since like the first time i was fascinated with fire and other deadly items(before the internets) was into bull whips and the sound it got... later found out it was a sonic boom that was making that sound. Also found out why the tip of the whip was easily replaceable was because after excessive use the tip would burn out and not be effective anymore. Even saw an old black and white high speed video of it on the television show! Which confirmed what every cowboy knew... leather bullwhips get on fire! 😎

  • You need to build a Sub-Sonic Glove Accelerator!! The inertial forces are too powerful, so reduce them by lowering the relative velocity of the ball from the glove's frame of reference. This could be done by building a rocket propelled glove runing on rails from behind the cannon. It would curve gently, then straighten out to match the line of fire. A nose cone would probably help too.

If you get one of these bikes and want it assembled and adjusted correctly support your local bike shop and have them tune it up.

    Joe ShedlerJoe Shedler3 klukkustundum síðan
  • I bet you can stop it by shooting it a giant net. As long as the strands of the net are strong enough to not get absolutely alliterated on impact. Maybe you can make a net out of chains. That definitely won’t break on impact. And as long as it is able to absorb the impact of the baseball I don’t think the baseball will break either

    Kort KooimanKort Kooiman3 klukkustundum síðan
  • @smartereveryday I think what that fire was is compression ignition. The ball is definitely going super sonic. You can see the mach cone around the ball as a white distortion wave. It has to have so much air stuck in front of it that it momentarily ignites. You can kinda see it too when it passes through the first and second basket weave gloves when you shot the line.

    Denton WhiteDenton White3 klukkustundum síðan
  • The fire comes from the rapid compression of the air molecules. The basket weave "catches" the cone of air being pushed in front of the ball and it's compressed as the ball closes in. As you compress air it builds heat. The compression is so rapid and severe that it ignites the oxygen molecules in the air.

  • is my second video of this cannon I've watched. And my highly curious mind just asked the question...... If you point it straight up at 90°, would the Earth's gravitational pull prevent you from putting a baseball into orbit? Is that something you'd dare try? If so, you'd need some kind of heavy duty tracking device to monitor its orbital position. Thoughts?

  • if you grew up playing cricket instead of baseball you naturally figure out that it hurts less if you move your hands in the direction the ball is travelling when you catch the ball. but what relative speed can a glove even handle? 200? so you'd need to actively move the glove away from the ball at 800mph.

  • I honestly believe it was a compression fire much like a Diesel engine uses compression to ignite the fuel. The baseball was moving so fast that just before impact the air was compressed so fast that it ignited. Just my theory.
