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.
Note: Volume on, that head smack is so satisfying. This is a video of a man convinced the laws of physics don’t apply to him attempting to stand against the wall of a centrifugal Gravitron. Admittedly, he does a fairly decent job, and I know exactly what I’m going to
Note: Video is not for the easily motion sick. This is a first person POV video from a projectile launched by SpinLaunch, an upstart company that aims (for the heavens!) to shoot small satellites and other space-bound equipment into the atmosphere using a giant centrifuge (aka suborbital mass accelerator). The
These are several videos (and there’s plenty more where that came from) from driving simulation game BeamNG.drive, which utilizes “soft body” (read: unrealistic) physics. In these particular clips, cars are pitted against a giant bulge (not unlike mine) in the middle of the road to see how they respond. Honestly,
This is a video of Slow Mo Guys Gav and Dan shooting a Newton’s Cradle desktop physics toy and filming the action in ultra slow motion. The resulting footage may surprise you, especially if you expected to see anything but a Newton’s Cradle getting shot in ultra-slow motion. No bikini
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
Because rocket science isn’t for everyone, this is a video of a man attempting to take a photo from a plane by opening a small window for a clearer view and getting the camera sucked out of his hands into the wild blue yonder. I don’t know, next time maybe
These are two TikTok videos of Texas A&M University physics and astronomy professor Dr. Tatiana Erukhimova demonstrating inertia (the property of an object to resist change in its motion) with two experiments: one involving pounding a knife through a skewered potato with a rubber mallet, and another dropping an egg
