    Happy Birthday Chuck Yeager - the first person to (officially anyway) break the sound barrier in 1947! He is a "young" 96 years old...

    His life story is quite interesting - worth a look!

    It's crazy to imagine traveling faster than the speed of sound. I mean "sound" is pretty darn fast.

    Not really all that fast, considering that the current jets easily break the sound barrier, but this was 72 years ago....

    They may easily break the sound barrier nowadays, but imagining traveling that fast is crazy for me to even fathom. Not like I hop in supersonic jets every day. lol
