    Default Feather and bowling ball dropped in a vacuum

    It's a couple years old, but I saw it today for the first time. It's something I have known since grade 6 science class, but definitely cool to see in action.

    When I saw Feather and Bowling Ball in the title, I thought this would be dirtier.


    The pen is mightier than the sword...unless someone is trying to stab you with a sword. Then, it's the sword...definitely the sword.

    Cool to see. Of course this wasn't the first time this was demonstrated:

    Cool video! just watched this with my 5-year-old nephew... The look on his face when they both dropped while the chamber was sealed... He just didn't understand... He kept saying that it was a magic trick. I then began to explain how a vacuum chamber worked and he just ran away to play with his Lego. Guess science is not for everyone
