    idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

    The reason the h-weave deflected the ball up is because there was resistance below and not above. Where as the basket weave has a more evenly distributed resistance. This was an awesome experiment btw

    Is the "smoke" that comes out just water vapor or condensation from the presssure difference? Whatever it is, I love the fact that the ball seems to pull some of the vapor forwared in it's Mach cone vortex.
