Postby RobesonsRme.com » Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:04 pm

Someone went to a lot of trouble and expense to prove correct a theory we have accepted on faith for hundreds of years.

The scientist in me says: "Ya! What did you expect?" But watching actually play out on video was really cool!

uhhhhh - I remember my high school physics class where we did this in a 2 ft dia by 4 ft tall vacuum chamber. Pretty sure that it cost muuuuuuuuch less than this. Although if you're going to do it then over do it - and pretty darn cool. :D

I wonder how long it took to evacuate all the air out of that chamber.
