This is a video captured aboard a Varda space capsule launched by SpaceX that’s reentering the earth’s atmosphere at around Mach 25, or around 17,500MPH. That’s fast. Varda developed the W1 capsule for companies that want to test or manufacture in space (in this case, drug manufacturing in zero-gravity). The
This is a video of Sylvie, who loves running in her giant hamster style exercise wheel, but ran a little TOO fast and was left spinning inside. Well, at least until gravity did its thing. But has that stopped Sylvie from continuing to enjoy her cat wheel? It has not.
This is a computer simulation of a pallet of wood being dropped on a car to visually compare the effect of gravity on different planets in our solar system. Is it accurate? Hell if I know. It was fun to watch though. And if it is accurate, I actually learned
This is a video from explainer of things Tom Scott taking a tour of and discussing the last aerial ropeway in England, one built in the 1920’s that’s operated by Claughton Brickworks in Lancashire. The ropeway is about 1.5-miles long, hauls 300-tons of shale every day, and does it all
Gravity: I wish it wasn’t so strong on earth. But only for me, I wish it was doubly strong for everyone else. But enough daydreaming about me leapfrogging over everyone all day, this is a visualization created by planetary space scientist James O’Donoghue comparing the gravity on various bodies of
In what is undeniable the lowest budget Fast And Furious movie to date, this is a short video of a shirtless man with a moderate gold chain collection playing with an anti-gravity race car (I’m fairly certain this model available via Amazon for $29) on the ceiling directly above his
Because some people are actually out there living the dream, this is a video from the guys of Youtube channel How Ridiculous dropping a 660-pound solid steel machined Hulk fist from 45-meters (~150-feet) to smash things below, including a toy dinosaur, stack of metal chairs, empty fire extinguisher, piece of
This is a video of the dream-livers from Youtube channel How Ridiculous attempting to cut a car in half by dropping it from 45-meters (~148 Feet) onto a massive axe blade. They also drop some other stuff onto the blade including a jet-ski, fire extinguisher, and a bunch of unopened
