Relativistic Baseball, by XKCD

If you’re not familiar with the webcomic XKCD, then you are definitely missing out.  Part of the XKCD experience is the What If? blog, which explores a wide range of hypothetical physics questions.  The very first post on the blog was an amusing discussion on “Relativistic Baseball.”  More specifically, it provides us with an answer to the question: What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?

The answer might surprise you — but I’m sure that it will also entertain you.  Click here to read and learn all about it!
