For all the science lovers, we have a treat for you. In this article here, we are gonna talk about something that was discovered in this world, centuries ago. So just to give you a background, this is what happened.

A group of friends traveled to the Gordon Dam in Tasmania to set the record for the highest basket ever scored, but they got a bit more. They put a small spin on their basketball to experiment, but what these boys (re)discovered is known as the Magnus Effect, first recorded by Isaac Newton back in the day. What happens next with ball post the effect is unbelievable for a normal man. To know it, check out the video on the next page...

We've given you a brief overview about what is gonna happen in this video. This is about Magnus effect. And the interesting bit here is that since this effect has a lot to do with air, it is applicable on everything that gets effected by air. In this video, you'll even see how this effect works on sail boats.

But for now, lets concentrate on this basket ball. What happens to this ball is incredible. Initially when they visited this place with basketballs, they wanted to break the world records. Did they ever break that record? You have to see for yourself. So take a look at this video...
