Submitted : Spring 2013

Entertainment in today’s world has many different extremities, from sports, movies, shows, or live entertainment. The Ringling Brothers Circus takes entertainment to a whole new level with live tigers and enormous trained elephants. The circus also includes a somewhat out of the ordinary human experience, the massive human cannon. The functionality of the human cannon is just that, to launch a human across an arena to much enjoyment of the audience. The human cannon pose a huge threat of danger to that of the performer and their safety lies in the hands of the mathematician.
