Cats In Zero Gravity Don't Tend To Land On Their Feet

Frankly, I'm amazed we haven't seen this already, given it combines two of the internet's favourite things: cats and science. This old footage of cats being subjected to the sense of weightlessness is fascinating - illustrating that the feline's lose their ability to land on their feet when they don't have gravity to help them. It also includes kittehs, and therefore demands your attention, seeing as how you're currently on the net.

It's also a much kinder video than this one from the 80s, where the cat kind of freaks out that it doesn't know which way is down.
