Bowling Ball And Feather Fall At The Same Rate

Brian Cox visits the worlds largest vacuum chamber in Sandusky Ohio to prove that all objects fall at the same rate in a vacuum. What results the first time the bowling ball and the feather are dropped, before the air is pumped out of the chamber, is what we would all expect because this is what we observe in our everyday life in earths atmosphere. What happens when they are dropped after the air is pumped out of the chamber, is a surprise to most people who have never seen this before.

 

APPOLO 15 PROVED THIS IN 1971

I have seen this experiment before. In the summer after my freshman year in high school I watched Apollo 15 astronaut David Scott perform the same experiment on live TV from the moon. He dropped a feather and a hammer in the vacuum of space, proving Galileo’s theory that all objects fall at the same rate.

 

The Space Power Facility that houses the worlds largest vacuum chamber was built in 1969. This must have been where the faked moon landings were filmed. Why did they go through all that trouble, just to show one experiment that wouldn’t have worked anywhere on the earth?

I saw the bowling ball and feather story at theblaze.com.
