just spun off on my bike to the the off licence for some essential supplies. when i got home my beer was cooler than when i set off. obviously the evening air rushing passed the cans cooled them down.

but surely air moving round stuff causes friction and friction causes heat. (i'm thinking space shuttles here). so can anyone ease my saturday night by telling me how fast i can go before the friction from the air heats my cans?

i'm in on my own if you hadn't noticed.

as for wind chill, there has to be a point where friction is greater than wind chill?

Well, a space shuttle enters the atmosphere at around 8 miles per second..... so you'll need a pretty big front ring :lol:
