    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!

    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.

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.

      1. bajasummit

        After 2 months I just realized that your design is scarily similar to a diesel fuel injector

      2. Koopking Coleman

        You should that thing big casey after the pome "casey up to bat"

      3. Tejaswi Kalaga

        Hey, In the video the ball is not spinning. How does the ball behave when its rotating and going super sonic ?

      4. Casual Main

        Put a metal ball in that and you got a cannon

      5. Me

        ah tf

    2. Yıldıray Genç

      I think you can send the ball to the sky! How high can it go? Good idea for your next video.

    3. Gurdeep Singh

      15:00

    10. Charles Gregorio

      Shooting starts at 15:07 thank me later.

    11. Sphinx Giza

      You need to lubricate the inner walls of the tube so you reduce friction between the ball and the tube inner walls.

    12. michael martin

      Any cricket fan watching ?

    13. bd Arancibia

      19:55 nice and poor ball

    14. ローテン。

      すんごいナックル(´Д`)

    15. Alexander Daniel Arifin

      Best part of this video 23:57 23:57 23:57

    16. Gunter Flunder

      You can use pressurized hydrogen and a longer canon tube to get the base ball considerably faster than that. But maybe, the air in front of the projectile could become as hard as a concrete and tear it into pieces.

    17. Wood James

      Each time i look one of your videos, i'm like "I hope that guy can live of the money he gets from it" because thats absolutly amazing to see so much effort and commitment into each one of of your video. So thanks a lot, from France, for every footage you've made so far !

    18. Vicki Brooks

      WHAT A BANGER!!! 1) I’m humbled you named the cannon after me 2) I’m stealing “What hath we wrought” as a catchphrase 3) I just signed up for your Patreon to get one of those balls!

    19. Shreyash Pandekar

      Wanted to see it with Cricket leather ball...................

    20. worldmadebyphysics1

      Works well for a civil war

    21. Jaxon Smith

      Imagine getting hit in the balls by that 🤣

    22. Chase Clifford

      Don't know if it has been mentioned but like the golfball I think a little air gets around the ball to pop the tape before (reason why the golfball bubbled the tape)

    23. superberns25

      spray cannon with wd40 and shoot ball to a Catcher mitt

    24. Tyreak Heygod

      0:18 here’s the what 😂

    42. kezako

      we really need more supersonic experience ! like under water? threw fire? supersonic flying phantom camera angle? ahah

    43. The Mighty Colon

      Finally, a science channel that measures with the imperial system.

      To me it looked like the two drops hitting underwater

    45. Lim Kai Quan

      So what do you have in your storage? Ohhh nothingggg just a machine to shoot a baseball at mach1.

    46. Kemal M

      Use the bar that spins fast and this and see how far it goes

    50. Deepanraj

      Super cool stuff 👏👏👏

    51. Kirk Bradford

      Maybe use a TRASHPANDAS Catchers mit to catch it and see how that goes!!

    52. justinas

      Is that a Vet from movie "Bethoven" in that pink T-shirt ? :D

    53. Michael Reale

      I wonder what it would look like if the ball had rotation! Maybe put sandpaper near the end of the barrel? 1000mph curveball!

    54. Anti-Islam

      The ball exploding creates a pattern like the universe. They could shoot it up.

    55. Bish Bad

      these guys are laughing like they're five year old kids. love to see them loving their work and having fun. living the dream!

    56. Harambe Matata

      I know I am WAY late to this, but I just found your channel today and I am blown away. I never in my life thought I would ever see a super sonic cone around a baseball. My head is spinning so fast right now with ideas. Keep up the amazing work!!!

    65. Duke

    69. 池昌言

      It would be wonderful if you can use the cannon to deliver the baseballs (just kidding)

    70. Pattem Sarvesh

      Shoot that in to sky? How high it is?

    71. ANURAG SINGH

      18:40 Thank me later👍

    72. shay fleishon

      An Idea - instead of gas pressurized in the cannon, load it with dry ice and also use heating for increasing the presure

    73. Tio Sam

      What i wanna know is what happens if you shot it in space

    74. Dre Underscore

      Looks like german's Schwerer Gustav
