Dropping A Bowling Ball And Feathers In A Perfect Vacuum Proves Science

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!

This video has gone viral with over one million hits!

Though the supplies were important, a NASA spokesman said there was nothing on the rocket that was urgently needed. Thankfully, the rocket was unmanned, and no one was injured. Read more here.

Six Decades Of A Warming Earth Animation

A debate has erupted over this new video by NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

The quick clip visualizes the warming of the Earth over the past 60 years. Supporters of Global Warming and Climate Change tout the video as solid proof of a dangerous trend. 

Skeptics argue that six decades is too small of a time frame to fully understand climate patterns. 

Still, NASA’s findings are glaring: 

“With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.”
