Hi Brit,

Just reading about this made me need to take some quiet time in the corner, Air Force Tests Ballistic Missile in California.  This missile went 4,200 miles in about 20 minutes, which is 210 miles per minute, or, 3.5 miles per second.  If that ride wouldn’t make you need to change your shorts, you have mighty fine self control.
