Levitating Pumpkins! Halloween Science

“”And the cursed pumpkin rose up from the earth, carried to the sky by the spirits of All Hallows’ Eve.” Or in other words, Andy put a superconductor in a pumpkin and levitated it on a magnetic track.” (YouTube)

A lovely RI Science video for Halloween, involving pumpkins and superconductors. What’s not to like?

Also, if you’re stuck for a costume to wear, why not try one of these physic delights? Dark energy, cosmic inflation, antimatter… it’s all there in ghoulish glory.

Happy Halloween. Onwards!
