BET De Arashi - 10/19/2017 - Paper Airplane Challenge 

In which Arashi members fold paper airplanes & compete to see whose plane flies the longest time. 

Sho-san names his red plane the “Red Eye” which has a double meaning here, 1) meaning the late night flights that arrive before dawn which Sho-san probably takes alot when he has to travel overseas for work. 2) the beer & tomato juice cocktail.  And the Red Eye flies for over 3 seconds

And here we have some Yama action with Ohno following Sho-san’s lead & uses his representative color to name his plane “Blu-No-Mars. So we know Ohno probably listens to Bruno Mars and probably saw the jet from the PV 24kt and used that as basis.  And Blu-No-Mars impresses with maiden flight of 5.74 secs thus becoming winner of this challenge.

Happy Martian New Year!

For any planet, a year is the time it takes to make one orbit around the sun. Because Mars is farther away from the sun, it has to travel a greater distance than Earth. It takes Mars about twice as long as it does for Earth to make one circle around the sun…therefore, a year on Mars lasts twice as long.

On May 5, Mars passes solar longitude 0 as the sun crosses the equator on Mars. This is the vernal equinox and was chosen by planetary scientists as the start of a new year.

Mars has four seasons, roughly twice as long as those on Earth, but with more variation given Mars’ eccentric orbit and the fact its orbital speed varies more as a result.

Did you know that there’s a U.S. city named Mars? Mars, PA hosts an annual Mars New Year celebration and we’re participating in this two-day science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) event to inspire young people to pursue innovation and exploration.

What was the craziest hunt item you came up with because you thought no one would ever manage to do it? Did anyone actually do it?

No one managed to get an astronaut currently stationed on the International Space Station to do an item. That was in the hunt a few years ago. That would have been awesome. The next year, though NASA named a mountain on Mars Mt. Gishwhes, so that was pretty cool. gishwhes.com
