The Thrills and Speed of Alpine Skiing

Tonight's episode of StarTalk's Playing with Science concerned alpine skiing.  Erin Mielzynski and Andrew Weibrecht joined us on the show.  It was a blast talking to them!  You won't believe how fast one can fly down a hill on skis.  Click on the link below to listen to the show.
This is the third of three Winter Olympics shows I recorded.  Meeting great athletes and learning a little bit about how they train and perform has been thrilling for me.  My jaw drops when I see them in action.  Teasing out all the great physics only makes what they do all the more fascinating!
