how are you getting that much momentum on the third kick


If you look carefully, the first kick hits with the side of the foot, the second hits cleanly with the end of the toes, and the third one hits flat on the bottom of the foot, which means a more solid hit (though one that might hurt a person less as the energy is being transferred over a larger surface area). That kick results in the foot being in contact with the board for longer, so more of the kick’s momentum is transferred to it. The first two only get the energy from the initial impact. The third gets that, plus all the energy that is carried into the follow-through of the kick as the leg gets pulled back down for the landing. Also, because the third board is caught in the center and turned horizontal, it gets additional distance simply from floating on the air like a frisbee. The second one, while kicked out of the person’s hand, is caught on the edge and sent spinning, which doesn’t give it any lift. It’s possible the third kick didn’t transfer a lot more energy, but the board was simply able to float better becasue of the way it caught the air.

Many people object to “wasting money in space” yet have no idea how much is actually spent on space exploration. The CSA’s budget, for instance, is less than the amount Canadians spend on Halloween candy every year, and most of it goes toward things like developing telecommunications satellites and radar systems to provide data for weather and air quality forecasts, environmental monitoring and climate change studies. Similarly, NASA’s budget is not spent in space but right here on Earth, where it’s invested in American businesses and universities, and where it also pays dividends, creating new jobs, new technologies and even whole new industries.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.
