Golf Balls Have Dimples Because of Air Or Something

Golf balls are generally none too pretty, with all the pock marks and dings, the scuffs and grass stains. They’re the most beautiful things in the world when you find them after a 10 minute hike through the woods, but other than that, they look pretty stupid. As it turns out, there’s more than a little bit of science behind that dimpled design, which an animated cat person will explain to you in the video above.

There are 9 other “sports mysteries” covered by Super Planet Dolan in the video, none of which unfortunately, is “What is Super Planet Dolan and why are there animated cats talking about sports, who did this, who devised such a thing?” But at least you’ll know about golf balls.
