Dr. Luke Donev set off 500 mousetraps armed with over 1,000 ping pong balls at the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY. Museum visitors watched in awe as a single ball triggered the cascade, and then discovered the physics behind it.
Here we see the cascade of mousetraps from above, but slowed down to facilitate tracking individual events.
