Definitely thought that was a Dalek behind you... Thought you had taken a very different career path for a second.

Try and get the National Museums Scotland's Museum of Flight in East Fortune to put Blue Streak back on display! It was one of the highlights of my many visits.

Your question made me remember .....at school I always argued that if you were in a spacecraft travelling at the speed of light and you ran from the back to the front, you would be faster than the speed of light. Apparently not. Still believe I'm right : )

I'd love to explain this to my son how to arrive at the right answer, but I'm embarrassed to admit I'm not able. Will the book have explanations to questions?

The main reason I love this is to stick it to the people who block my path and then insist it's no faster to walk along a travelator/up an escalator than to stand still!! Even saw a famous person (who shall remain nameless) say it on national television. Grrr!

Great question! Fascinating to read so many discussing it! ...Can we answer these puzzles in a centrifuge, vibration test, or hypobaric chamber please, preferably all at the same time with limited critical time available?! 😎
