Imagine a big block of ice suspended from the ceiling of the Exploratorium. Now imagine a wire wrapped around the middle of that ice block from which is hung a motorcycle. Chill out with other skeptics and watch the motorcycle fall to the floor as the wire very slowly cuts through the ice, but bear witness—the ice block remains one whole piece! Check out this stranger-than-friction phenomenon for yourself at the Exploratorium’s Cutting Ice into One, on Saturday, November 7, 2009, during a free weekend as we continue celebrating our 40th anniversary.
