Basics of Aerothermodynamics

Interstellar Shock Waves

Critical Point (Thermodynamics)

Analyzing Sonic Boom Footprints

Sonic Boom (Because of Quicksilver’s mach cone angle, the shock wave would trail behind him not creating a very large noise – take this image but replace the shockwave with the visual in the video)


Speed of Push is the Speed of Sound (How Much Does a Shadow Weigh)

Human Eye & FOV (Can We See the ISS with the Naked Eye?)

BONUS FACT: The air resistance acting on Quicksilver would be the same as dragging half a blue whale behind him. He’d be burning the energy equivalent of 30% of what the Space Shuttle used to launch into orbit.

    The flash can run faster than the speed of light.
    Why not do him instead of the shitty knockoff marvel version of him?
