بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Just now a friend of mine impose a rather interesting science question. How would it feel like being in Hypersonic speed?

and since i kinda have eargasm listening to these kind of word such as "hypersonic" or "speed", i decided to look it up in the net. And surprise surprise, i discovered just how much of a human body can sustain before breaking. And that's ladies and gentlemen, worth of 16g. Sixteen the times of earth acceleration. Even an acceleration in a Honda Accord 91 felt superb, now can you imagine a face tearing, blood-vessel-exploding, blood-boiling acceleration the 16 times of the earth gravity.

and here i am talking about acceleration. To be honest, i think the feeling of accelerating from say 1o km/h to about 50 km/h is purely sensational. Yes, i might be only driving in an old sedan but there is something indescribable about acceleration that makes you go mad for it. You know excessive acceleration consume more fuel, you have to change gear, but that satisfaction you get when that body of yours were slammed at the back of the seat, that push you felt when the gear changes. Mental.

Oh, and back to the question again. How would it feel? at hypersonic speed, definitely you'll feel fast. But it's not the speed that is important, it's the acceleration. Because human didn't get killed by speed, the acceleration or the impact is the real murderer. Fact. and because that kind of speed you can't find it anywhere on the road for obvious reason(no tarmac would be long enough) you won't be feeling it quite. Unless you're an astronaut which you are not.

and that all i got to say. and in case you are bored with all this nonsense science here a picture of a kitten so that you time is worth spent here. Thanks :)
