Cold water would churn up from the ocean depths, creating global cooling and tsunamis. Eventually, however, the moon, still rotating, would start moving toward Earth. The tidal energy of the moon would tug on Earth and start it spinning again.

    Relativistic Baseball. A baseball traveling at ninety percent of light speed would create a thermonuclear explosion as it came in contact with the air. Batter, catcher, ballpark and everything nearby would be destroyed. It would also happen so fast that everything would remain stationary. An MIT scientist who also simulated this, however, told Munroe that his result could not be duplicated.

A swimmer who does not dive down and touch a spent fuel rod would be exposed to less radiation than a person normally gets walking around.
