Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

Physics is cool.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy." Winston Churchill
this was also done on the moon by astronaut David Scott during an Apollo 15 EVA - watched it live
much better video this one
Participating in a gun buy back program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids

Really enjoyed that. Broke up an otherwise crummy work day, thank you!!

I remember watching it, too, and even though I knew what the outcome had to be, I still got a thrill out of it!

That experiment has been verified numerous times over the years, but that one was very nice.

That is a great video.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Beautiful. The whole science of it and this observing of it.
Yeah, I agree, but I was most interested in Einstein's take at the end, but the video ended.
A couple SIGs and a few others
Great video. Largest vacuum in the world is in Cleveland, go figure.

Equivalence Principle. Short take - the laws (physical principles) of gravity (whatever that might be), are independent of an object's location or velocity (Strong Equivalence Principle) in space or time. Somewhat modified when dealing with very large bodies (like the Earth), that have tidal effects, but essentially the Earth, the feathers and the bowling ball are all accelerating toward each other in a precisely defined manner and path, independent of the physical nature of each of them. Whew! My head always hurts when thinking about relativity and cosmology. Real physicists can weigh in, but the universe of all we know is almost certainly screwier than we can know. Imagine showing a chimp (apologies to SM, but really, our closest kin on this ball) the inner workings of a modern jet engine, and trying to fathom the conclusions it might reach as to its purpose or origin (beyond big shiny hard thing, not good to eat). And although you might show said chimp every single bit of said engine, its analysis can never progress much beyond that.

Awesome video! Thanks for sharing
Thanks – neat video. Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity were far more profound and astounding, and no experiment to date has found any flaw in them.
Note to self: Don’t clutter threads with gratuitous posts.
Great video! Galileo was right! Bowling balls fall really slowly in a vacuum, as proved by the video.
“Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things.”--Adam Smith, born June 16, 1723
Who knew Galileo was a bowler?
