Description

The pitch drop experiment at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland was started in October 1944. In April 2013, physicists at Trinity College noticed that a drip was forming, and set up a webcam to record the drip on video. The pitch dripped around 5:00pm on 11 July 2013, marking the first time that a pitch drop was successfully recorded on camera.
