The Kid Should See This

A microgravity demo in the Willis Tower Skydeck elevator

The next time you ride an elevator down 103 floors, take a scale with you, because you might want to try this microgravity experiment: In collaboration with Willis Tower, Kevin from the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago travels up and down 103 floors in the tallest, fastest elevator in Chicago to demonstrate some science.

When not moving, Kevin weighs 180 lbs (81.65 kg), but what happens when he’s standing on the scale during the elevator ride down?

Next: The Hammer-Feather Drop in the world’s biggest vacuum chamber and 2,000 ping pong balls and 30 middle-school teachers in Zero G.
