Viewing Alert: Bad Universe Episode 2

He’s back!!! Our pal Phil Plait the Bad Astronomer is back again on the Discovery Channel with the second episode of his new series, “Bad Universe.” It is on TONIGHT (October 6), so check your local listings here, and you can also find when it will be replayed in case you miss it. Above is a teaser/trailer of the second episode where Phil flies in an F-16 — it’s awesome! Just how much punishment can Phil’s frail, pale, scientist body take? Find out!

Can’t get enough? More videos are available on the Discovery Channel’s main Bad Universe video list. And by the way, Bad Universe will be shown immediately following Mythbusters this evening.

  1. Pilot Tony Mulhare’s spoolin full up military right off didn’t give poor Phil much time to adjust, now did it? Urp…

    Highly nimble, the F-16 can pull 9-g maneuvers and can reach a maximum speed of over Mach 2. Its F110-GE-100 turbofan provides 25,735 lbf (114.5 kN) afterburning thrust to climb at 50,000 ft/min (254 m/s). With a typical loaded weight of: 26,463 lb (12,003 kg) the standard version(s) is no doubt heavier then the ultra light versions the Thunderbirds fly? Which I’m sure, are quite the tricked out rides!
