That guy is trying to steal my electronic thing-a-mabob held together by a which-a-macaullic in conjunction with the hand made plastic dohickey and pressurized gronasteel that can circumnavigate the isolated zip skimmer every 57.5 Quadra-second.

This is why we can never have anything nice.

I have a feeling that NDGT was not teaching an upper-level course in physics there. You need a 20-second bit on how wings work to generate lift, there you go. Manley's attempted point that the molecules don't form a pact and agree to meet up at the other edge of the wing is pretty juvenile.

Considering how charmingly pedantic Tyson can be he deserves to be called out on this, especially since the misconception is so common.

Looking forward to him looking up the actual cause and making another video setting the record straight.

The plane will move forward and fall off the treadmill regardless of the speed of the tread.  Whether it can take off depends on how much damage it sustains when it takes off.

And because this is fun stuff, let's look at the obverse. If the jet were at pre touchdown speed as landing, that speed right before it landed would render the wheels on which the matched speed conveyor it landed perfectly irrelevant, for a moment; negating the instant friction and slowdown caused by the initial contact. Then having dodged the zero to lift speed co-efficient we could kick the whole conveyor rig out from under and it could hover in bliss...

No connection at all. However, there is no way to go from zero to lift/flight speed without all the speeds in between which would be face plant territory when unsupported by volumes of air forthwith lolol

Beyond that, it's a bunch of wheels going very fast.  And, four engines running up to full speed - think how that works in a static jet engine test stand.  Those positing that a treadmill going at warp speed will create the airflow needed over the wings ... these are facts not in evidence, as the lawyerly types would say.

Of course, that is the taking off scenario.

If it were already at cruising speed and somebody managed to get a flying conveyor under it, well, the point would be mute...lol
