At 1:01, why does he say its the equivalent of two cars traveling at 120 miles/hr crashing into each other? how is that equivalent to a car crashing at 120 miles/hr into a stationary wall.

I think the highest recorded force someone has survived for a very short duration is 175g's~. They said going from 120 to 0 in 58ms was 400g's, absolutely no chance of survival. Even with a safety cage, your organs would look like they got thrown into a blender.
