Today’s Sciencey LOL

Funny science picture

According to Newton’s First Law of Motion, an object will continue moving at the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by another/external force. What this means is when you slam the brakes on your 18-wheeler truck to avoid a family of rednecks crossing the road, your massive cargo of solid rock will continue to travel forward at speed.

Guess you should have strapped that in, mate! Or not… your picture has officially gone viral and has provided millions of science students with a perfect way to never forget what Newton’s First Law of Motion is.

Domain Eukarya, kingdom Animalia (Metazoa), phylum Chordata, class Mammalia, order Primates, family Hominidae, genus Homo, species Homo sapiens, subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens... essentially. I have a Master's Degree in Atmospheric science, which doesn't entitle me to be generous with my opinion, but my sense of self importance does! I love writing, I love science, I love reading, but I'm not nuts about long walks on the beach. Short to medium walks are preferable. This is my blog and I have something important to say: https://whybecausescience.wordpress.com/
