A wonderful and surprising video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtdljdoFAwg

Did you know that a ball glued to an infinitely flexible sheet can be rotated continuously and for ever, if done properly?

Enjoy!

I have updated the pdfs of the free physics book. Volume 5 has profited most. Thank you for all the corrections that have been mailed in - and a happy new year!

Meet the “motion microscope,” a video-processing tool that plays up tiny changes in motion and color impossible to see with the naked eye. Video researcher Michael Rubinstein plays us clip after jaw-dropping clip showing how this tech can track an individual’s pulse and heartbeat simply from a piece of footage. Watch him re-create a conversation by amplifying the movements from sound waves bouncing off a bag of chips. The wow-inspiring and sinist...

The volume on relativity of Motion Mountain, the free physics textbook, is now available in Japanese, thanks to the admirable work by Megumi Hirooka:

Free download of the Japanese pdf file, with colour films and images, is possible from http://www.motionmountain.net/japanese.html
The Japanese welcome page of the Motion Mountain physics textbook.

Look at this animation and experience the fascination of the belt trick and of tethered rotation:

Thank you to Jason Hise for producing this animation and for allowing me to use it in the first volume of the free Motion Mountain Physics Text.

The latest edition of the free physics text at www.motionmountain.net includes the direct detection of gravitational waves, the world distance record for throwing any object, new riddles, an introduction to the pseudoscope, a film of a moving light pulse, an impressive optical illusion that makes colours disappear, and much more.

And as usual: wonder and thrill on every page.
