Everyday Objects at Not-So-Everyday Speeds

"Everyday Objects at Not-So-Everyday Speeds" is a YouTube channel intended to introduce younger people to the physical principles involved in hypersonic flight. Every episode we will take a 3D-printed model of an everyday object and fly it at Mach 6 in our shock tunnel, HyperTERP. If you have a suggestion for an everyday object, please email it to hypersoniceverydayobjects@gmail.com!
