    I noticed that supersonic and mostly Hyper-sonic objects when colliding can compress the air so rapidly that that any combustible material (oil from leather conditioner) ignites.

    Even if the glove is just barrely holding, that you can kick it away on yourself, the glove have no time to move away when the ball flies through🤣🤣🤣

    13:53 it's skinning the ball as it breaks through the gloves! That's nuts. It broke through ALL of them. What a monstrous device. It's just a baseball. Imagine a ball of tungsten. They should try catching it in the palm of the glove, not the netting.

    6:45's moving so fast, the ball has an anime aura. Pretty horrible, really. I thought it was going to stuff the glove in the hole, but it went through the glove too fast.

    When you catch a baseball, the flex of the arm and wrist plays a part in slowing the ball down. If you mount each glove on an arm of some sort which flexes slightly, I believe the ball would significantly slow and not rip through all 10 gloves.

    Love Smarter Every Day episodes. I have a challenge for you. Mostly because I don't feel I'm intelligent enough to address this basic but massive issue. I believe I can improve any wind foil device. As you know. Nothing moves without the cost of drag coefficient. I propose a wing/pressure vessel with vents to counter the drag coefficient. What are your thoughts on this.( A hint ) Think of an airboat. I'd like to see a Daytona racecar run without it's rear spoiler.

    Maybe he figured it out already, but the "fire" might have been a resultant of the "oils" in the leather of the glove. At that speed, and that friction at that speed, surely will increase the temperature high enough to spark the oils in the skin.

    You can see a small flame on the ball before it hits the glove, pretty cool, maybe that one particular shot worked out to have the highest velocity thus allowing a flame?

    To ‘catch’ the ball try nesting the gloves one immediately inside the other...the added mass and friction of the gloves and their pieces may absorb more energy as well as strip the cover off the ball...
