    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.

    Nolan Ryan's fastball has been beat, but when adjusted for radar gun placement it may still be the fastest pitch ever:

      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 , Jeremy Fielding, Trent, and David. I realize most people who support Smarter Every Day don't do it for "transactional" reasons, (ie, supporting Smarter Every Day to get stuff). People usually support because they understand what I'm trying to do here and are of good will. I also realized that there is often a mental hurdle that must be crossed before support on Patreon starts.

        That is the longest comment I have ever seen

      2. Rocket Man

        I think you should fire some baseballs at a double slit in the metal plate...... With a back witness plate & see what it says.

      3. Jason Glaser

        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. ;)

      4. Thiago Rodrigues

        Hi destin, My name is Thiago, I’m a big fan of yours here in Brazil 🇧🇷 I love your content and became a patreon for 5-6 months now but never actually received my baseball, it wold hold a lot of sentimental value for me, because was your channel that made me learn English just to watch your videos and understand all that was said.

      5. Alfa fox

        at 16:46 was that a cavitation bubble? in air?

    2. Randall Salas

      It reminds me about the series "Colony", when the aliens smash people when climbing a wall

    3. Randall Salas

      And I wonder what little kid got the first hit when then tested it, haha. At some point the ball had to land....

    4. Jaxon Davis

      Does anyone else want to break there glove in with this

    5. Casey Albiero

      Dude said "what have we done" lmfao

    6. Tim Root

      Mad Batter + Baseball Cannon + Stuff Made Here's ballistic bat = best video ever

    7. James West

      Did you happen to have anything to do with the development on the Navy’s railgun?

    8. Nitrix The Wolf

      15:10 that thing sounded like a sniper Focus tank Cannon O_O

    9. Jeremy Clayton Hood

      Y’all should rifle the barrel to get the nastiest curveball ever

    10. MrBabyBitch666

      listening to a team of seasoned engineers talk is completely bizarre

    11. Charlie Begg

      I really want to see how fast you could make the baseball go if the vacuum didn’t fail at those high pressures.

    12. MBmann

      This is why I hate watching this channel . It just makes me feel stupid . Like what’s the point of living when I’m this stupid

    13. Robert Moseley

      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.

    14. Dark Slayer16

      I learnt more I this video than 14 years of school

    15. NoJuan Holmes

      I tried to bring that to the baseball mound but the ump wouldn’t allow me to use it

    16. NoJuan Holmes

      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

    17. Rutilas_Fulgur

      Now imagine this at a perfect vacuum, full psi and the best possible weather conditions, maybe mach 2 or better (Edit: grammar)

    18. Wes LaBrash

      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?

    19. bryce hutcheson

      lol, you fired the thing towards power lines, that would have been hilarious to hit one. i gotta ask is it legal to build a giant cannon.

    20. Tim Cuatt

      Amazing valve design! It's fast, consistent, and high flow rate. Holy moly! Why did you ditch the converging-diverging nozzle? I've been curious if they'd be any good in air cannons.

    21. Jordan Hemminger

      I love how I’ve watched this 4 times and have never noticed the sight rail on the top of the barrel 😭👌

    22. Joe Bidenov

      He really got ahold of that one and it’s headed to the upper solar system.

    23. Patrick Viertel

      thats a hard homerun to catch

    24. David Sutton

      Go Trash Pandas!!!

    25. Anthoney Zerbe

      I feel like If I knew more about this it would make this video more enjoyable. But I do like air cannons lol

    26. Hugh Mungus

      Just guys bein dudes

    27. Zomb1ekill3r2014

      batter up

    28. Tunderstixx

      Some welders, some engineers, money and too much time..... Works for me !!!

    29. Ryan Olbertz

      I just realized that they just made a military grade mortar to shoot baseballs with... Looks like I can start my world domination plan with my buddies with just a bit of determination!!

    30. Vincent Does Stuff

      I LOVE SCIENCE!!!!!!

    31. Webpros TV

      I saw tenet in the begining

    32. Jacqueline Richardson

      I SO badly want to throw paint into the mix. Painting on a steel canvas with a supersonic baseball would be crazy.

    33. Jacqueline Richardson

      8:50 the pure joy in their laughter is contagious! (Also -- RTR)

    34. bIRBMAN

      I just witnessed science.

    35. konkelkent

      Next we have to see a hardened steel ball come out of that thing, it would be absolutely insane

    36. Slavic Dude

      9:10 did anyone see that cat

    37. raultejedor

      Those balls could be sent to GPS coordinates instead of addresses.

    38. Connor Marshall

      Man was just walking on a normal day, and then gets slammed by a supersonic baseball from miles away!!!!!

    39. Robert Vilén

      "Duuude, What have we done !" :D

    40. Ian Tan

      This guy made a freaking home made howitzer

    41. Uncle Creepy

      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.

      1. Candies

        ok

    42. Crypto Bytes

      Try tungsten steel balls and then see what happens to that target

    43. Ozman Hernándelte

      Great channel bro you literally make it fun to watch and not boring i watched the whole video and now I’m watching more of yours from your playlist but you make the math and science fun in collab with the actual demonstration bro keep doing you and being you because you are great man you might have inspired me to do a few things

    44. FuriousGray33

      It’s like a snowball being thrown at a person they way it explodes! 🤯

    45. JamesPP Pyacek

      Who are these guys who have rad machine shops and the money and time to build things no one needs?

    46. Justin

      I mean it’s neat but it’s not THAT exciting

    47. videogameguy101

      The ball will not hurt you

    48. chad emery

      All the things you love, and laminar flow was not included?

    49. Rungeon

      9:20 the ginger cat at the top! Hahah cat be catting about

    50. nonoman305

      So now let's see 1000psi!

    51. Mensa Swede

      Okay it’s super cool, but now all us engineers want to know why the vacuum is suddenly lost when you reach a certain pressure? Surely troubleshooting was done to determine why this is happening, and if it can be corrected?

    52. Deacon Ramsey

      Destin built a tank air cannon Ohhh goddd

    53. Malachi Clifton

      Ok, I know it's been a while since you worked on this but I have a question, if you launched it into the sky would it reach escape velocity?

    54. Dane Rhodes

      destin kinda looks like johnathan torrens from trailer park boys

    55. Joe D

      mike trout could hit that

    56. Pietro Parisi

      Science is very cool!

    57. Eagle Ranch

      You need to make a version with a rifled barrel now

    58. Danny Phantom

      19:58 is why you’re here. You’re Welcome.

    59. Sky GG

      I like his content

    60. Just Jdyn

      But the camera is on an angle for the second post so technically it's going even faster

    61. sabin_playsroblox YT

      My nickname for it is the baseball basher

    62. Overpay

      that picatinny rail though :'D

    63. Gavin Mann

      Destin be like: This is NUTS

    64. Lehel R

      Please, for the love of god and all that is holy: use SI, because i do believe your audience is international. I have no f*ing clue what mph, feet, .... is.

    65. Karry C

      Or maybe you should get super compressed air

    66. Kamryn Sawyer

      Cat on the box

    67. 3KLANG

      8:49 turn on the subtitles xD

    68. Sudo__

      that haricut...

    69. Shawn Nguyen

      Maybe the third rift that bounced back in the shadow was the compressed air waves traveling at Mach 1 from the baseball collision with the barrier

    70. Amdraz

      Wonderful production quality, which makes watching the engineering all the more enjoyable. Great work all round!

    71. TBPE Vlogs

      Can we just talk about how that looked like throwing an egg at a wall?

    72. MindfulDisc4847

      Destin: talking about aerodynamics A random team: can we go on our field to play yet?

    73. Penguin King

      How to win WW III: Watch this video

    74. Astral Plane Encounters

      Wow!..... The baseball colliding with that metal plate looked like a raw egg hitting the pavement after being dropped off the Sears Tower!.....

    75. Astral Plane Encounters

      ..... My favorite part of the video is @ 20.42....."However, back in the day I had a crazy idea and I was able to convince my wife" ...... (Destin laughs, revealing the mad scientist within)..... LOL

    76. Problematic G3nius

      "grown men giggling" the captions LMAO

      I love the mullet kicking in

    83. FNC ski

      Dude. combine this with the machine you guys used to hit the longest home run and see what that would do. New video idea. Shoutout plz if you do this. That would be awesome

    84. Kvothe

      Here in Australia that would be classed as a proscribed weapon and get you a hefty fine, if not gaol time.

    85. Daan Kruit

      now thats a lot of damage

    86. Vercus100

      Anybody else notice the cat sitting on top of 8 feet of baseballs at 9:09?

    87. Mattias Eensaar

      Macbok pro with the windows 10 toolbar lol

    88. your dad, westyn

      They created a railgun

    89. Systems

      You talk too much

    90. nikki herr

      9:10 your cat climbed the boxes

    91. elevers

      Compressing the air so hard with the sheer speed that it behaves like a liquid. Day-um!

    92. Zana Alford

      The accessible colt ordinarily dance because freckle anatomically pretend opposite a wistful ceramic. tense, sordid joke

      You were on the Friday mystery dodg!

    97. z0ck3r

      so thats what smashed my window

    98. Billy Mehaffey’s Tips and Tricks

      Hey if you were to coat the ball in Vaseline or any other petroleum based lubricant it would diesel ignite and give you more bang as well.

    99. Billy Mehaffey’s Tips and Tricks

      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.

    100. Billy Mehaffey’s Tips and Tricks

      Hey check out PCP air rifle compressors they are only $200.00 to $600.00 on eBay and they build up to 6000 PSI
