It’s been a strange week for physics. The other day Mamoudou Gassama climbed up a building to save a child and now a Latvian firefighter caught a person falling from a building.

The video of this catch is absolutely insane. In the wired article Rhett Allain breaks down some of the physics involved with the catch and basically, it was probably close to impossible.

Another “impossible” physics feat popped up over on reddit today. A user named Entracksh got about 41,000 upvotes for this gem when I wrote this.

 

This unlikely combo is amazing and I have to ask does this kid have a future in professional soccer? Probably not.
