Does anyone know where I can find a video of the "bowling ball and feather" video, or anything similar? This is where a bownling ball and feather are dropped in a vaccume and hit the ground at the same time.

How about a hammer and a feather (http://www.etsimo.uniovi.es/solar/r/apo/apo15g.avi)? :wink:

How is that possible, I thought we faked the moon landings?

That's what I read on GLP.

1970-era CGI effects. You don't think NASA needed all those supercomputers for calculating orbits and aerodynamics, do you?

OMG, I never noticed but you can see the feather move in his hand but his hand doesn't seem to move. Obviously it's the huge fans on the set!

You can't use the divx player. Media player should work.

At present, WMP is uninstalled (because it's eeeevil). I'm on Winamp; the clip's audio works fine, and it plays other .avis without issue, but this one for whatever reason gives me an indiscernible, fuzzy static image.

Ok, you should still have a copy of mplayer2 in your Windows folder or somewhere. Otherwise you could grab Media Player Classic (http://www.neilturner.me.uk/2004/Jan/13/media_player_classic.html). The vid is probably somewhere in mpg format though.
