Exactly one second after the cannon was fired, Mighty Mouse flew up to touch the bottom of the cannonball. He then immediately turned and flew back down to touch the inside bottom of he cannon, then up to the cannonball, down into the cannon, and son on, until the cannonball fell back into the cannon's barrel.

What was the total distance Mighty Mouse ha flown when he was finally smashed into mouse-mush by the cannonball?
