See a discussion starting from post 670567, which explains the matter in some detail.

There are formulas and stuff, and it is possible that the show was in fact two seconds out when it claimed that this journey would take 42 minutes and 12 seconds.

The thread above mentions that it's not possible with wind resistance. You need a total vacuum.

Can we just leave this thread alone? Nothing to gain from it.
