Where: Long Beach, CA, United States Venue: The Pointe, Cal State Long Beach


Description

Legend claims that Galileo stood atop the Tower of Pisa and dropped two rocks of differing weights, and found that they both fell at the same rate.  But what if one rock were magnetic and the other not?  Would they still fall at the same rate?  Come and see for yourself as we replicate an experiment first performed by the late Boyd Bushman.  Decide for yourself if there exists a connection between magnetism and gravity.
