How Do You Pour Water Up Into A Glass?

Upwards PouringHow do you explain this picture of water being poured upwards into a cup?

It’s not a trick of the eye; the water is actually flowing upwards (as the land is at the top of the picture, and the sky at the bottom). It’s all to do with gravity, acceleration, and fake forces.

To save me and you a lengthy explanation here, just head on over to Wired Science and read about what is happening over there. It’s rather complicated, but fascinating nonetheless. Plus they have a video of a weightless dog.

Onwards!
