This 83 year old running experiment is something quite fascinating. I first caught wind of it 15 years ago, and I sat “on watch” for probably two years before I realized that it was going to be some time before anything cool happened..  I have since lost track of the experiment until today, where I see that much progress has been made in the progress of the drop actually reaching the floor, however, it seems that it hasn’t actually broken off yet, which is good, because we may be able to see the conclusion some time in the next year.  Navigate to the website and read more of this fascinating experiment..
