Reg boffins blow lid on sheepsecs
Lucy Sherriff on Welshmen and the maximum velocity of a sheep in a vacuum
Vid Many, many moons ago, Reg boffin Lucy Sherriff provocatively stated that the "comet-tailed" red giant Mira was thundering across the heavens at "roughly 150,000 times" faster than the speed of the average sheep.
This prompted lively debate about just how fast sheep might in fact travel in the vacuum of space, and Vulture Central got straight down to settling the matter once and for all.
For those of you who may have missed the sensational result, which redefined the theoretical ovine space travel paradigm, here's everything you need to know about sheepsecs:
Lucy can also be seen here making another vital contribution to the advancement of science, as she sensationally exposes jubs and Hiltons. ®
The maximum velocity is a definitive figure. However, the effect on time of the gravitational field of a black hole would, of course, affect the speed as perceived by the observer.
what is the speed of a toy sheep in a Dyson vacuum cleaner?

Whatever floats your boat, mate. ;)
