Bethany Gano did the Illustrations and I really like them.

David Coventry helped make the loop animation at the end! He and a lot of other people helped me on this Reddit thread, which I accidentally deleted. You can still get to it: https://www.reddit.com/r/Physics/comments/53490a/im_making_a_smarter_every_day_video_about_flying/d7q6vx1?context=3

Seriously, I really wanted to be a fighter pilot but the eye thing was a thing back then. Fortunately for you guys, if you’re young and want to be a pilot…. and are willing to work hard to get the grades to do it, you can hop over to http://www.af.mil and look into being a fighter pilot even if you need corrective surgery. Here’s a link to get you started:

I decided to use ALL CAPS in the title of this video because I feel like it deserves it. Tell Brady Haran if you read this.
