Today is for all science geeks. In 1591 it is said that Galileo (at the time, a mathematician at the University of Pisa – the location of the leaning tower…) proposed that a feather and a cannon ball would fall at the same rate of speed if there was no air resistance. In other words, gravity is an equal force no matter the size or weight of the object. Nearly 100 years later Isaac Newton mathematically proved the theory of gravity building on the earlier idea of Galileo.
Brian Cox and the BBC put this to a test. In rather dramatic fashion. Make sure to watch through to the end and hear what Einstein thought of it all.
All I can do is sit in wonder at God’s creation. An endless expression of creativity and design.
