Falling, Spinning, Landing, Eaten

This video of a camera falling from an airplane is surreal, funny, dizzying, and awesome all at once; but that’s not what is remarkable about it. The incredible thing is, this video is real (Bad Astronomy). Phil Plait provides an in depth analysis of what can be seen in the video, especially during the descent and spin phase. It’s interesting stuff, and just goes to show that the camera can, indeed, lie.

Also, do stay till the end. Onwards!
