    In 1894, a French scientist used a camera to solve a physics problem.
    Join the Video Lab! bit.ly/video-lab
    Étienne-Jules Marey was a French scientist and inventor who analyzed how things moved. He developed a way to photograph multiple stages of movement onto a single glass plate, a technique called chronophotography. Later, when Kodak introduced celluloid film, Marey swapped the glass plate for a roll of film that moved in between exposures. This technique formed the basis of cinematography, and it’s how he recorded the stages of a cat righting itself in midair. He published his findings in Nature and demonstrated how the cat splits its body in two and uses the inertia of its own body weight to spin around.

Why does my bread always turn upside down when it falls when i apply my butter? Please answer this

The butter began as chewed-up grass, which grows closer to the ground than the grain that makes up the bread, so the natural order of things dictates that the butter should wind up lower. ;-)
