Drop of Pitch Finally Caught on Film
Geege Schuman stashed this in Science Too
After decades of waiting, physicists at Trinity College have for the first time captured a rare scientific event on camera.
70 years after the experiment was set up, the scientists have videoed pitch dripping from a funnel.
The experiment was begun by a colleague of Nobel Prize winner Ernest Walton in the physics department of Trinity in 1944.
Its aim was to prove that the black carbonic substance pitch is a viscous or flowing material.
I was disappointed to learn that the story was not about baseball.
Ireland goes long.
I was disappointed to not see the video.
The video is in the link. It's small, to the left, and I can't get it onto PW.
Irish narrator: "This discovery is of questionable value." :)
