In this month’s video team death punch goes skydiving for the first time, successfully reaches last month’s balloon crash site, retrieves video footage of a sunset from 106,000 feet, explores waterfalls within the intermountain west, experiences canopy open flight in a Grumman Cheetah, and more. In the process we discover a little more about each […]
Because the GPS unit on our first balloon launch failed, Team Death Punch set out to accomplish the mission of filming a sunset from 106,000 feet.

After an exciting day of mining for gem stones, exploring abandoned mines in the West desert, and squeezing into some tight places, we camped in a Team Death Punch hot spot for midnight cave swimming. The water level in this gurgling cavern was the highest we had seen.After exploring the cave we cooked brats […]
Consider the equation . This equation relates the pressure, volume, and temperature of an ideal gas. All of these concepts are macroscopic — meaning that on the level of the molecules that make up the gas the meaning of ‘pressure,’ ‘volume,’ and ‘temperature’ dissolves. One molecule cannot have a pressure, it cannot be said […]
