You don't trust others? You don't have to. Here's a cool experiment you can do on your own to measure the speed of light.

I am going to try and keep this up and do some more fun experiments. If you have ideas, feel free to message me!

Please visit http://www.smarterthanthat.com/ (because we really are smarter than that if we just think about things) - to see more information, extra explanations and just fun. If you like it, please digg the blog entry!

I will probably post more experiment videos, so if you want to see more, show your support by participating in the blog and diggin' it. :)


For any experiment ideas or questions, msg me.

Remember: True science is about experimentation and observation. If you use your brain to do some thinking, the world is at your feet!

Enjoy!
