I little bit of insight into why it appears that wheels move backwards at high speeds. This is also known as the wagon wheel effect and it is a product of the limitations of the human brain. We can only take snapshots of the world around us at a particular speed. Our brain tries to piece together these snapshots to make them make sense and that can lead to some odd illusions.

Comment below any other tech/science related topics you'd like me to explain
