light as a feather

Physicist Brian Cox visited NASA’s Space Power Facility in Cleveland, Ohio (!!!) to perform a fantastic science experiment!

did anyone ever tell you that a bowling ball and a feather would fall at equal speeds if it weren't for air resistance?  i didnt think it would be so interesting to watch the actual experiment, but they did a great job with this short clip!

Great to see that demonstrated when we only knew it in theory.
Liked the comment "now we know why birds can't fly in space"!

NASA's done that experiment before, on Apollo 15. Different gravitational field, mind you.
