French Scientist Used Photography To Explain Why Cats Always Land On their Feet

The phenomenon of the "cat-turn" by which a cat always lands on its feet has been an enigma since the 19th century. 

The French scientist/inventor, Étienne-Jules Marey, who was interested in the motion of objects, decided to use a special technique in photography, called chromatography, to solve the enigma.

He used an anonymous white French cat and dropped it from an unspecified height in the Bois de Boulogne, filming its descent at 12 frames per second. The photos show how a cat falling, even with no rotational movement at the beginning of the decline, would gain momentum while in free fall. He even published these photos, along with his research, in a volume of Comptes Rendus in 1894.

Ultimately, this brave and likely unsuspecting scientist didn't know his little experiment actually contributed to the space exploration, even though  it took over 50 years for NASA's researchers, T.R. Kane and M.P. Scher, to publish their findings in a paper titled "A Dynamical Explanation of the Falling Cat Phenomenon."

Dudes do the Math on If a Fart Could Propel Someone in Zero G

Finally, the answer to the question that's been burning you up inside for years. Given that this is all about getting around space using the force of pushing gases out of valves, this is technically rocket science. For another fun physics lesson, here's Tumblr uncovering the legend of the fastest manhole cover ever. For more fart stuff, here's deaf kids learning about farts.

Guys chat about the math and physics using farts as propulsion in space | If floating zero g with no momentum essentially stuck space space station and, let's say there are handholds nearby 1 meter away and way 90kg hard would have fart propel body nearest handhold weigh Completely dependent on fast want get there As fast as possible suppose need determine capabilities human anus withstand explosive forces. don't know if fart would have propelling force similar on Earth as zero g

New Images Solve Solar Physics Mystery (6 GIFs)

A group of international researchers and scientists have shed light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy and heat from the Sun is transferred to the Sun's upper atmosphere, heating it to more than 1 million degrees Farenheit - temperatures that are hotter than the Sun's surface. 

With new images taken in granular detail by the New Jersey Institute of Technology's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers discovered that jets of magnetized plasma (spicules) spurt like geysers from the sun's upper atmosphere into the corona (the outermost part of the Sun's atmosphere). These spicules are between 125 and 310 miles wide and erupt continuously across the Sun's surface. Images of the jets also shows how they are made and the paths they travel (at 62 miles per second).

The corona is invisible to the human eye and the source of the mechanisms has been a confounding mystery for astrophysicists - until now. The GIFs below show granular details of the new images taken by the Big Bear Solar Observatory

Tumblr Users Get Schooled On Physics and Car Safety

The general idea here is whether or not older cars are "better" than newer ones when it comes to accidents. Sure, an older sturdy car won't fall apart as easily in an accident. What it will do is transfer all the kinetic energy of a crash directly into your body. Sometimes people on the internet are wrong about stuff, like this discussion about the facts of plague and veganism

Tumblr user explains why newer cars are safer than old ones.
