Best thing I’ve seen all week.


I see your fluid dynamics and raise you magnetohydrodynamics, because Maxwell improves everything.


I was a big paper airplane fiend when I was in Junior High School (middle school). I followed all the same rules that the video states: center of gravity, lift, stall, etc. Time and errors perfected my planes. I purpose built one that stayed aloft for 4 minutes…due to an updraft coming from a banked hill just east of the grassy eating area. It only crashed because other kids were throwing rocks at it. And I was put in detention for it…because it caused the other kids to throw rocks which could have hit someone below. That ended my exploration of paper airplanes. -*(
