Last summer, Spangler Labs took a company trip to an amusement park. We didn't go for a company retreat, we didn't even go on a day off. We went to do research on physics, the science of motion. One amusement park ride that really got Steve thinking was the gravitron. As we all stood in a circular room with our backs against the wall, the walls began to spin. Faster and faster the walls spun until the floor dropped out from under us. There were shrieks of terror as everyone thought they were about to fall, but to our surpise... we didn't drop! Steve wanted to find a way to recreate this phenomenon on a small, kitchen-science scale. Steve Spangler Science gives you the Marble Gravitron!
