It’s a Record: Highest Egg Drop

egg.jpg David Donoghue of Blackpool, England holds the record of the highest egg drop in which the egg remained intact. The height? An amazing 700 feet (213 m).

David threw the eggs onto a golf course in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK. Getting the physics right is a vital part of the record. “You have to get the forward velocity equal to the downward velocity, then get the egg to land nearly perpendicular on a steep slope,” says David.
