Cats In Space – Will A Cat Land On Its Feet In Zero Gravity [Video]
If you drop a cat, it will land on its feet. That is a fact. I don't suggest go grab a cat and test the theory you're going to have to trust me on this one. Cats instinctively rotate their bodies on a horizontal line to make sure they always hit the ground with their feet down.
It is very similar to the response humans have of putting their hands out when they trip. It is something the brain does to protect the body from injury.
What would happen if you took gravity out of the equation? If the brain didn't sense the up and down of the Earth's attraction? Would a cat still attempt to put its feet down? Would it just start spinning like a windmill or would it simply be a cat and ignore the humans and their silly games.
