Scientist Risks His Life To Prove That Gravity Works

Jan 25, 2016

In this edition of “X-Treme Scientists,” a Norwegian physicist free-falls while attached to a zip line with a weighted ball on the other end. His bet is that the momentum of the weighted ball will stop his fall, and thank goodness for everyone involved, he ends up being correct. It’s a very cool demonstration, but we suggest that the next time his students aren’t paying attention in class he just brings in a Vine star to explain instead.
