A month ago (previously), Youtuber Veritasium sailed Blackbird (previouslier) directly downwind faster than the wind. Afterwards, a physics professor bet him $10,000 that it didn't happen. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye weighed in. Veritasium asked Xyla Foxlin to design and build a working model to win the bet. Foxlin (who surprisingly never seems to have been featured on Metafilter) has also built a cedar-strip canoe, built some flame throwing greeting cards, and sent her Miss America crown to the edge of space.
