Drop one weight into the tube and, no surprise here, the weight drops to the ground with a thud. Go figure… it's gravity at work! The second weight might bend your mind a little, though. Drop this weight into the aluminum tube and… wait… why didn't it come out the bottom? Give it a second, that weight just takes a while longer, but figuring it out may be a bit tricky. That’s why we call it Newton’s Nightmare!
