First of all let me give you some advice: the YouTube channel Veritasium by Derek Muller is full of science and engineering videos.
Experiments, interviews, all sorts of challenges, interesting presentations. I burned a source of inspiration, but I'm glad you will follow it.
Also because the last video has, at least for me, funny and relevant content.
Take up a challenge, risk your life
The premise of the video focuses on an almost "scholastic" issue of physics elementary. Muller himself states that it all started with a puzzle: "Can any wind-powered vehicle be blown by the wind until it goes faster than the wind itself?"
Your brain probably started to go haywire as you thought about the answer. Don't be afraid. Consider that mine also went haywire in translating the question.
The counterintuitive idea that "something moves faster than what pushes it" has been debated for years, from Internet forums to college classrooms, sparking arguments and fits of anger among amateur physicists everywhere.
How did the challenge go?
Rick Cavallaro, an aerodynamicist, kitesurfing and paragliding enthusiast, and his friends have built a dedicated wind vehicle to meet this challenge.
To be very simple, as you imagine, what the creators of this vehicle claim they can do is so counterintuitive that it seems to violate the law of conservation of energy.
And of course, as any self-respecting YouTuber would, he decided to try driving the vehicle himself and see if he could kill himself it really works.
