Rainbow Dash Actually Obeys Laws Of Physics For Once
Today we're taking a break from talking about rainbows in the sky and instead talking about how awesome Rainbow Dash is.
She's not as awesome as Rarity, but she comes pretty close sometimes. It's not her fault, really. It's tough to come close to perfection. It's like coming close to the speed of light- the closer you get, the harder it gets to actually reach that plateau of pristine pony perfection. Although, supposedly the way that warp drives work is by squeezing the space time in front and behind the ship with a projected field of some kind so that you never have to deal with the relativistic effects and energy consequences of approaching the speed of light. It's called the Alcubierre drive. Look it up.
Anyway, so, in an episode whose name I can't remember just from the above picture, Rainbow Dash flew through some clouds, making some nice holes. At first I think we all assumed it was cartoon physics and left it at that. However, supposedly this can actually occur if the object is moving fast enough through said cloud, as soon above.
I don't have an article to go along with the post this time, but, it's hard to argue with those kinds of results.
