Default Who wants to have some engineering fun.

Find the mass and size of an object traveling terminal velocity that can punch a 3ft hole in 10 inches of ice.

There is a story behind this I swear.

This sounds like one of those stupid undergrad physics questions..

.. How fast do you have to throw a snowball at a wall, so that it vaporizes upon impact....:chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw::chiefwoohaw:

An Iowa couple is looking for help trying to identify something that fell from the sky and onto their land over the weekend. It happened sometime late Friday night or early Saturday just south of Knoxville in Marion County.

"Whatever it was it hit hard enough to throw water out of that in a big round circle," says Denny Straube.

On Saturday morning, Straube saw three holes in the ice on his pond. The biggest was about three feet across. From his dining room that morning, Denny quickly noticed something different. The impact of the mystery object of objects left several 15 foot cracks running from the hole and about three inches of displaced water on top of the ice.

"Did someone lose something off an airplane? Was there a meteor shower that night?" Denny Straube wonders.

"Maybe God's mad and throwing snowballs at us," Terry Straube says.

Whatever fell from the sky this weekend, it's under six feet of ice and water. The Straube's hope someone volunteers to scuba dive in their pond this summer to find out. According to the British National Space Center, about ten thousand football size meteorites hit the earth each year.
One of my Co-workers is diving for these on saturday. they've already scanned the bottom and they think they can see words on the object.

Hmm, I drove through Knoxville last night . . . and although I don't know more than about 15 names in this state, the name Denny Straube sounds familiar.

ckupq, what brought you to Iowa?

I just started at Vermeer Mfg.
