    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:

As a former Tool & Die/Machinist and lover of Science/Curiosity I appreciate the hours of hard work, manufacturing and team effort that went into this experiment! I am soooo glad I happen to stumble upon your channel!!! I've watched the F-16, weed whacker and baseball videos and I REALLY must get back to work!!!! I'm eager to watch more videos when I can safely do that in my spare time! (Like I actually have any) Thank You Destin and your team for keeping curiosity and asking questions ALIVE!!!! Get these kids away from video games and realize the joy in SCIENCE and EXPERIMENTING!!!!! Bravo!!!!

shoo the baseball into the air with the cannon , calculate and figure out where it lands , then get someone to catch the ball , it will go to terminal velocity before it lands if you rais the angle higher . now that would be cool

One time my brother had some hot dog stuck in a straw so he was sucking on the straw to get it out, thus creating a vaccum. Well I walked by and saw this and noticed that he was having a hard time so I decided to help him by blowing on the other end of the straw. Well the instant I got to full mouth pressure, this chunk of hotdogs shot into his mouth with the velocity of a cat when it sees a cucumber. Point of the story, I understand what's going on tn this video.

Destin, Please take this to the next level after you have played with this a while. Use this amazing cannon to pre-accelerate a sabotted projectile (baseball) into a electromagnetic rail cannon and push your speeds faster than an air cannon could ever hope to accomplish. It would be even more epic than this. Thanks for the awesome video, Stillavantis

After sleeping a night over this, two more ideas: You could put a plastic/aluminium cap with an o-ring on the front instead of tape. There is enough over pressure that it still gets shot of way before the ball reacheas the end. if the vacuum is better with the cap to the point you hit the cap...well.. use less vacuum. For the complete plug mechanic: The idea of the inner dual tube is great. But. Instead of pulling the plug and having to catch it at the back i would go for 2 exactly fitting pipes with holes (oval shape?) When the pressure builds up the holes of the outer pipe and the inner pipe are mismatched (bit of teflon grease ?) blocking airflow. To release the pressure you turn the outer or inner pipe by 45° "as fast as possible" (pneumatic cylinder?), so the holes now are aligned and the gas can flow into the inner tube and out to the barrel. This would get rid of all the moving bearings, seals / leaks in the back plate of the cylinder, the catchblock (?) takes quite a beating each shot. Or, If you have a car-geek, you could use a single V8 cylinder head modded to open all valves at once insted of the plug. Perhaps a truck diesel engine because of higher pressure.

But this is the BEST CRAZIEST Video I have even watched and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would normally not even waste my time to comment but you my friend are just awesome with your crew. Sorry I know Kudos don't help the project but I hope a little encouragement helps a little. I I will be sharing on my little Facebook account who knows maybe someone there in a better situation than my current situation could help, who knows but it's always worth a try.
