Is Gravity an Illusion?
June 30, 2014
The air date has been set for the “Is Gravity an Illusion?” episode of Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman Season 5. The show will air this Wednesday July 2nd on The Science Channel at 10pm ET/PT (USA).
Last August, A Quantum Astro Physicist from MIT Boston was at the farm doing research/experiments for Through the Wormhole … For the gravity based episode they needed a deep pond in which they could drop a 5,000 lb. wrecking ball into to visualize, study & watch the resulting waves. She dropped an apple in first – a relatively small object and then the big one – to see the difference in wave size and how far they travel out from the original drop site.
Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence — the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity.
