Interesting about a shuttlecock...
A badminton birdie, also known as a shuttlecock is the fastest recorded object in all of sports. The shuttlecock, made with a cork base and sixteen carefully selected goose feathers, is aerodynamic and very light — weighing only about five grams. Its aerodynamic behavior has even influenced the design of the spacecraft Space Ship One. According to Guinness World Records, the fastest recorded hit during competition belongs to Denmark’s Mads Pieler Kolding, who managed to smash a 264.70 mph shot, during a Badminton Premier League match in 2017.
