i wonder where that fastest ever manhole is now

for the unaware, the fastest man-made object ever is a manhole that was blasted off it's drain by a nuclear explosion and was very briefly recorded as travelling at over six times the escape velocity of earth.

i say briefly because even using the slow motion cameras they had for analysis of the blast the manhole was only visible for a single frame in mid air

Listen

@PsyChuan

honestly, with that kind of force it probably at least melted due to air resistance
