Brian Cox of the BBC had the incredible opportunity to visit NASA’s Space Power Facility in Ohio to see the world’s largest vacuum chamber. As most kids learn in school that a bowling ball and a feather will fall at the same speed due to gravity if there is no air resistance, he and his new NASA friends decided to demonstrate the famous science experiment.
Even though the results are known, the experiment is still stunning to watch. The feathers and ball fall at the exact same rate and hit the ground at the same moment. Amazing!
