Weighing the Earth.

In our newest collaborative video adventure in the Fundamental Constants series, Eric and I performed and shot our own version of the Cavendish Experiment, which was originally designed to determine the mass of the Earth by looking at the gravitational attraction between spheres. The shoot was an exhausting affair that spanned several nights and left my arms, legs and feet extremely sore. Eric was a patient and generous cameraman and scientific consultant, despite my whining.
