This Guy Defies Death To Demonstrate Physics Law

He wanted to demonstrate some Newtonian laws of circular motion and how objects with a centripetal force, which forces traveling objects to follow a curved path, accelerate as they approach a central point. However, sterile laboratories with little pulleys and weights don’t quite do it justice. Instead, it seems hanging 14 meters (46 feet) off a sketchy-looking Norwegian warehouse displays it much more effectively.

The clip below is from a show called "Life on the Line” on the Norwegian channel NRK Viten. Unfortunately, if you’re outside of Norway, you can’t see the full program.
