      Instead of steerable fins (that impart a rotation) how about 4 trim tabs perhaps 1cm wide and 2 cm high mounted, top hinged (maybe cut into) the fuselage and mounted between the now fixed fins? Individually controlled. Pushing the lower edge of one tab into the airflow would push the engine end sideways without imparting rotation.

      Although those orbital kinetic weapons get much of their energy from the orbital velocity they travel at, as if it was just dropped from a balloon from the stratosphere it wouldn’t hit the ground any harder than it would at a couple thousand feet.

      Except by everyone who advanced our knowledge of the universe and took us to the next level. I’d say he’s on par with them. There are thousands every day with this level of dedication making society function, without them, we wouldn’t be on CZcams watching this or having the level of comfort we know. It’s kind of the flaw of our society with how we are quick to celebrate just one person while there are many others putting in the same time and work that get no celebration. I mean this one build is a great example of how this could not have been pulled off with just Mark, and that’s fine because to advance and do great things, we need each other. I do get your point as Mark is in the upper percentile of people doing great things and dedicated to it. I sure wish this type of thing was around in my formative years as a child.

      They were only going about supersonic (~340 m/s) and objects start to burn up around mach 5 (~1700 m/s). The egg probably heated up more from the heating implement than friction heat.

    I have recently seen a video of two guys dropping eggs onto grass with drones. The eggs were dropped with nothing attached and when dropped on grass, they didn’t break. I think they went as high as 300 feet? I was curious on your thoughts on this and wondered what the height would have to be to break the egg. I don’t remember if they hit terminal velocity, but I thought the correlation between these two videos were interesting. Love the videos.

    I absolutely never heard of balloons being sent to space on daily basis around the world. Thanks

      Most countries send them up daily, but didnt know that they all launch at about the same time globally!

      @Gus Sharples Sphere of influence and atmospheres are very different. What you're saying applies to the sun, which has an atmosphere that covers the solar system (memory could be hazy) and a SOI that effects neighboring systems.
      As far as I know Earth's magnetic field doesn't reach the moon, the Sun's does for at the inner planets (again memory hazy).

      @riot Leaving the atmosphere requires reaching escape velocity, the only things on Earth with enough propulsion to do so are space rockets and some major volcanic eruptions.
      Orbit is essentially moving so fast you miss the ground, gas can't move that fast naturally. They "float" in the atmosphere by their weight then are pulled down by gravity.

      @Howder03 It's not that it can't "break through" the atmosphere. The reason that the balloon is rising is that it is less dense than the atmosphere around it. That means that it rises, despite the fact that there is a downward force (due to gravity). When it gets to a high enough altitude, the concentration of atmospheric molecules around it will mean that the atmosphere has the same density as the balloon itself. At that point, it will stop rising, but there is no barrier. To keep moving at that point, you would need another force to overcome gravity. As there is precious little atmosphere to create a reaction force against, rockets would be the only way to go - but even then, you are not breaking through anything - there's no surface tension or anything like that.

    My question. Would the egg be hot or cold landing from space?

    Mark, don't ever grow up. I love your enthusiasm and I hope you never lose that! BTW congratulations on soft landing the omelet!

    Altitude reached was 100,100 feet (18.95 miles/ 30.51 kilometers). Congrats Mark : )
    Since technically Outer Space actually begins at the Kármán line at 328,084 feet (62 miles / 100 kilometers),
    will you ever do a part 2 or another Space Drop Video? I just love these videos (BTW it doesn't have to be an egg).

    Mark can you cook an egg just by dropping it from space?

    The fact this one egg has traveled much higher than probably anyone watching this video will ever go is just insane

      @Rager Squad the egg would need to be fertilized in order to hatch… even if it was I doubt it would survive being exposed to those temperatures

    • Notle Wisz

      Why? Getting an egg to the edge of space is far easier - cheaper, less energy required, no safety concerns, etc

    Nice that you are starting your own business to advertise on your own channel! It’s great to get kids learning more STEM topics with some hands on activities. Surprised other CZcamsrs aren’t taking a similar approach!

    Also, just curious about when you said, " this is a hot egg." Did you check to see if it was still fully uncooked? Does the experiment count if the egg gets "hard boiled"?
