Sound so fast you can feel it!

I did a lot of research on land speed racers when working on The World’s Fastest Indian, but nothing quite this fast – check out the sonic boom from this ‘car’ doing 1126km/h!

Of course planes can pass the sound barrier as well, check this one out:

Nice bit of sonic physics, if you feel like a read

FWIW the speed of sound is 331m/s, which is why if you sit at the very back of a large picture theatre the sound will be a frame or two late… At 24fps, 1 frame = 13.8 metres of distance
