Car vs. World's Strongest Trampoline, YouTuber Drops Car from 150 Feet

Mark Rober dropped a car from 150 ft onto the "world's strongest trampoline."

Mark Rober was called out on building a trampoline that was strong enough to withstand anything thrown at it even from a trillion feet up, and boy, did he deliver!

Having worked for NASA for nine years on the Curiosity rover at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we could say that the YouTuber was more than happy to hop on the project.

Let's just say that there is a lot of math involved. After designing on CAD and running it through dynamic analysis, they settled on a design to actually build it. While it can be summarized in one sentence, it is a fun process to watch and rack one's brains out.

Moreover, kudos to the mechanical engineers out there! This video shows the highs and lows of being one: the loop of designing something in CAD and analyzing the outcomes to see how it would work in our world through math and equations. Which is the core of being an engineer in the first place!

Also, we might not have "actual" flying cars in 2020, but isn't this pretty close?
