Is Usain Bolt Actually Faster Than Gravity?

By Eric Limer on at

Usain Bolt is fast. Like, really fast. He's pretty much the fastest dude that ever was fast. And while that's impressive in its own right, could it be that he's actually faster than gravity, one of the fundamental forces that rules the very nature of the universe in which we live? Well, that's sort of a weird question to try and answer, but that hasn't stopped MinutePhysics from poking at it. The answer is SPOILER ALERT "maybe, sort of" but I'll let the master explain the details. Suffice it to say you don't ever want to be running from Usain Bolt. [YouTube]
