MIT Scientists Figure Out How to Get Ketchup Out of the Bottle
According to Heinz, ketchup exits the company’s iconic glass bottles at an excruciatingly slow .028 miles per hour. In case you were wondering, that’s slower than a Galápagos tortoise, which, according the San Diego Zoo, creeps along at a relatively speedy .16 miles per hour.
What’s the cause of such lethargic condiments? That would be our old pal friction. Luckily for burger fans everywhere, impatiently tapping our ketchup bottles might be a thing of the past thanks to MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith.
