Gravity & Space & Marbles

Video of the Month

If you’re a regular visitor to our pages, or a fan of our Video of the Month, you will know we’re quite partial to different kinds of visualizations.

I guess you could call us viz geeks! And we’re doing nothing to shake that tag with another example of a cool visualization – but this time with a difference…

Below you can see physics teacher Dan Burns conducting a workshop whereby he visualizes and explains the effects of gravity and space-time warping using just Lycra and marbles. We think it’s pretty awesome but we would – we’re geeks!

Video is hosted on YouTube here.
