How a Slinky falls in slow motion

Watch more with these video collections:

How does a slinky fall when extended by its own weight and then released? We’ve watched this before, but perhaps not in the smoothest of smooth slow motion (ie. 1600fps with a Phantom Flex camera) that YouTube’s The Slow Mo Guys can provide. 

Follow this up with this 300fps explanation by Veritasium!
