Slow Motion Flipping Cat Physics | Smarter Every Day 58

Slow Motion Flipping Cat Physics | Smarter Every Day 58



High Speed video. Cats. Physics. Weightlessness. Of all my videos, if you don’t share this one, you probably never will. Please consider sharing by clicking here: http://bit.ly/FLIPPIN_CATS GiGi was not hurt during the making of this video. We took great care to make sure she would be safe. Next I’ll explain how the physics involved in flipping cats allow us to operate Space Telescopes (Seriously).
So as simple of a question as this is, it turns out to be a MAJOR POINT OF STUDY in Physics, Robotics, Space Satellite Control, Weapons Development, Biomedical Engineering, etc. It’s stumped scientists and engineers since Newton’s day. Here’s something interesting. The cat isn’t twisting his back.. he’s actually BENDING it. The next video will go into great detail about what’s going on there, and explain how it relates to studying the farthest points in the universe (Seriously… the fact that a cat can do this allows us to study the Universe.. no exaggeration).

The high speed camera used was a Phantom Miro M320S. Rent one yourself by clicking here: http://bit.ly/ON8gMg Tell them GiGi the cat sent you

Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please share the video. If you REALLY liked it, feel free to pitch a few dollars towards their college fund by clicking here:

Warm Regards,

  1. Thanks for making my childhood. You are part of the reason I started learning about space. This will always be one of my favourite videos

  2. Looked to me like Gigi was starting to enjoy it and she begun to anticipate the drop. As though she wanted to show off her scientifical magic powers.

  3. That is the most chill cat I've ever seen. Almost seemed to enjoy it. Especially being held like that. So awesome. My cats would murder me if I tried that

  4. ⚠️HEY DON'T IGNORE THIS⚠️God loves you, turn to him today and Repent Your Sins So you can be saved. God Bless🙏🙏Nang maging Malaya ang Pilipinas mula sa pamamahala ng mga Amerikano, si ___________ ang nahalal na pangulo ng Pilipinas
