    I was always curious about windows on airplanes and their structural integrity. I found this on Quora...

    For those wondering, I read the article and it was very intriguing. Can't tell the answer, I'd be the spoiler!

    I believe the windows are multi-paned. I also believe the punch of a professional boxer would leave the windows in tact and the boxer with a sore hand. ;)
