World record for the largest domino toppled in a chain

In August, 2009, Stefan Schöppers and his team succeeded in breaking the world record for the largest domino toppled in a chain that begins with a “regular”-size domino. Their largest domino, shown in the video above, is 6.40 m (20 ft 11 in) in height.

That record held until an 8m (26 ft 3 in) tall domino was toppled in a on the Dutch National Science Quiz TV show in January, 2013. You can watch that video here.

So how does this all work? Learn more about the science behind the spectacle in this domino chain reaction video by Professor Stephen Morris, and enjoy more videos with dominoes.
