NEW YORK -- If high-profile celebrity endorsements can help sway the Baseball Hall of Fame electorate, longtime  Seattle Mariners designated hitter  Edgar Martinez might have gained some traction this winter in his case for a spot in Cooperstown. A day after Pedro...

Found this when i should have been working:
In 1966, mathematician Paul Cooper theorized that the fastest, most efficient way to travel across continents would be to bore a straight hollow tube directly through the Earth, connecting a set of antipodes, remove the air from the tube and fall through. The first half of the journey consists of free-fall acceleration, while the second half consists of an exactly equal deceleration. The time for such a journey works out to be 42 minutes. Even if the tube does not pass through the exact center of the Earth, the time for a journey powered entirely by gravity (known as a gravity train) always works out to be 42 minutes, so long as the tube remains friction-free, as while the force of gravity would be lessened, the distance traveled is reduced at an equal rate. (The same idea was proposed, without calculation by Lewis Carroll in 1893 in Sylvie and Bruno Concluded.)

Twenty years ago today Ayrton Senna died at the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola at the age of 34.  His personality, his celebrity, his accomplishments and his legacy are all indelibly remembered.  While it may seem crass to focus on it (Senna wouldn't have thought so), he was also a three-time Formula 1 champion who, if he had survived, could have won at least four more titles, at least a couple of which instead went to Michael Schumacher, whose seven titles is a record.  Senna would have been the unquestioned greatest driver in F1 history.  As it is, you get quote after quote after quote from people who say he was the best F1 driver they ever saw.  He just never got to prove it statistically.

I can't think of anybody lost in the prime of his sporting career who could reasonably have gone on to the the greatest [whatever they were] of all time.  I thought of Mario Lemieux's battle with cancer and a bad back.  Plenty of Penguins fans will tell you that if he'd been healthy, Lemieux would have won more Stanley Cups and certainly would have finished better than fourth or fifth in the all-time scoring race (he's currently eighth, with a few players having passed him since he retired).  I don't doubt that, but health didn't keep Lemieux from being the all-time greatest, Wayne Gretzky did.

The documentary Senna from a few years ago is just an outstanding motion picture.  Highly recommended. Amazon instant video:
