Happy New Year! There's a lot more to explore here. For example, the coefficient of restitution! If you work for the MLB and would consider letting me in on some baseball science I'd be game. P.S. Besides the obvious answer of Cal Ripken Jr., who was your favorite baseball player as a kid? Also, thank you to everyone who supports Smarter Every Day on Patreon. I really appreciate it.

Hello Destin! I just learned something interesting. If an airplane fly from point A to point B, it takes longer if there's head/tail wind than if there's no wind at all. I just can't think it right without doing some calculations. I wonder if you're interested in doing a video about this!

Destin- In reference the Audible "Skunk Works"- A few years back, we had a guest speaker at out annual Cristmas Banquest for the 8th Air Force Historical Society MN Chapter (an organization of WWII combat air crews, Naval and Marine avistors, POW's Korean War, Vietnam War , first and second Gulf War vets and guys like me). The speaker was Bill Fox, who worked with Kelly Johnson at the Lockheed Skunk Works on the SR71. It was an incredible hour + presentation!!!! One of the most interesting nuggets he shared was that the plane was built using titanium, he told us the largest supplier of titanium in the world was the USSR. He and we reveled in the irony and also how America got the titanium. And the last photo he showed us was a picture of him, outside a hangar with a multi-colored plane in the background. The plane/project was titled "Have Blue". Oh...and a friend of mine was a F-117 driver who tokk a few trips to downtown Baghdad. And I asked him why the plane was an F instead a B-117 as it was not a fighter but a bomber. He said it was a marketing move by the Air Force. The plane was a single seat bomber and they needed fighter pilots to fly it. And he said "No self respecting fighter jock would even consider piloting a bomber. So they designated "THE Plane" F-117 but never told the prospective pilots it was a bomber until they committed to the program." And the lead in was "Hey...we have a really cool, top secret deal we think you'd be interested in but we can't tell you anything about it. You in?" And of course, Wes was in.
