On May 3, 2015, famed scientist Steve released plans for a revolutionary new machine that will change all of our lives.
Dubbed “the fastest fan in the universe”, it will go “2,000 miles per second.” This fan is a demonstration project with the intention of demonstrating how fast you can make air move a ton of fans. Additionally, it will demonstrate air pressure. On top of that, the intent is to give insight about water pressure, which is known to be just as strong as air pressure, but denser. Steve noted, however, that water is not part of the design.
Here’s how the apparatus works:
In a bottom, sealed glass chamber, there will be a ton of fans blowing out into some more fans. These fans, will in turn, blow the fans into tubes. These tubes lead to a smaller dome in which there is another fan. This fan will make the whole thing the fastest fan in the universe.
While scientists remain skeptical of Steve’s discovery, others are excited about the possibility of moving air through this fan at an estimated Mach 9,500, or about 1% the speed of light. Steve’s indication that it will be made out of glass and fans and tubes, however, have won over many material scientists with its common sense approach.
This fan is expected to be finished in March 2016, and will be used for demonstration purposes only.
