    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!

    When I was younger, my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripken Jr. and Nolan Ryan en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nolan_Ryan
    Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

Actually, seeing the extra hardworking people in the video made me wonder approximately how much of your own money do you spend making your videos? I’ve seen those videos where the only extra helping hands were those of your children lol, but in an episode like this, machining all of these parts must have cost a pretty penny. I know how charitable you are, and maybe some people do this stuff with you for free, but I’m curious exactly how much it all costs. Really love your channel and I hope you never run out of questions to answer. ;)

Destin, at 20:14, the baseball starts to look exactly like the discs created by the blue and red plumes from the Vortex Collision Device. You even get bits of leather spread evenly around the perimeter, similar to the "secondary's" you reference in that video. Pretty cool.

What if you grab the ball and spin this really long claw and spin it faster and faster and faster and then blow up the thing supporting the grasp of the claw or release the thing holding onto the ball. Could you beat the speed of a ball shot out of a cannon? I bet you could at least get it close, but timing the release would be difficult

As the gas pushes the ball I assume some gas will get in front of the ball for the split millisecond that inertia holds the ball. Could it be pressurized gas hitting the end of the barrel in front of the ball?

This is suppose to be a video about a 1,050 mph fastball. That means the video has to be about 23 and a half minutes too long. Oh, no, we’re going to make a simple air cannon and over analyze it and explain it as if we invented this concept.

Nitrogen is a liquid transferring into a gas just like C02 and the reason air rifles don’t use C02 is because it moves slower than air and the best gas to use to propel an object is helium. You end up with a 30 to 40% velocity increase compared to air.
