Random WOW: ' Fastest Boat '

Furthest Distance Ball Kicked

The film Superman featured a young Clark Kent kicking an American football into orbit with his super leg power.

But the actor playing the 'man of steel' did not actually kick it!

That football was in fact launched out of an air cannon.

And when it landed, it killed someone.

But enough about films. What is the reality behind distance and kicking a ball?

Well, in 2004, a young man named Ken Borley kicked a ball - and when he went to find it, he could not find it!

Science agrees that young Ken kicked that ball the furthest a ball has been kicked, and definitely not that the ball simply went down a hole, or disappeared into a bush
