Thank Goodness for Gravity

The boy featured in this video has concerns about spinning through space on Earth until he is introduced to a Foucault pendulum. He learns that French scientist Jean Bernard Léon Foucault used his knowledge of pendulums to demonstrate Earth’s rotation and how that movement is a steady, measurable motion rather than a dangerous one. KET adapted this video from the original produced by the Lexington Public Library in Lexington, KY.
