Что такое 40Gs и 8Gs? (про полет НЛО)
An article in Paris Match stated: "The object had speeded up from an initial velocity of 280 kph to 1,800 kph, while descending from 3,000 to 1,700 meters ... in one second! This fantastic acceleration corresponds to 40Gs. It would cause immediate death to a human on board. The limit of what a pilot can take is about 8Gs.
