For some reason, every now and then – like now – I remember the Dinopocalypse episode of Radiolab. It’s such an awesome account of the science involved on the day the dinosaurs died. Give it a listen and stick with it if you’re not familiar with the comedic delivery of the main presenters.
So much of the science is unimaginable until you hear the physics explained bit by bit. Terrifyingly inspiring stuff.
In turn, reminding me of my favourite ever XKCD What If? What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?
