How fast is 9.58 seconds? Watch this video. I think you'll understand.

The idea comes to us via Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Flying, who offers a musical demonstration of 9.58 seconds that we've mashed up with video of Bolt's race. I'll say this: You can break down Bolt's performance with all the graphs in the world, but none of them will capture the sheer, galactic wonder of 9.58 better than half a Beatles lyric.
