I’ve recently stumbled upon Randall Munroe’s latest site, What If? [link]
It attempts to scientifically answer some of the craziest questions out there. The very first, for instance, is,
What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?
The results are pretty explosive. The near-light-speed baseball pitch is only the first example. The questions answered so far include:
- What would be the chance of guessing every question on the SAT correctly?
- How much power can Yoda generate?
- What would a mole of moles be like?
- How long would humanity last in a robot apocalypse?
There are some great answers so far. I will definitely be keeping this on my bookmarks.
