September 8th was gravity day, the day (in the U.S. at least) where the date (9/8) is the same as g, the rate of acceleration of an object due to gravity (9.8 m*s^-2).
To honor the occasion, GE and Vine users teamed up (again, remember their #6secondscience contest?) to create the world’s longest apple drop, an homage to the historical tidbit that probably had very little to do with Newton figuring out the whole gravity thing, although it makes a cute story :)
It ends with the very first Vine in zero-g, which incidentally is not a state where something is under no gravity, but rather when everything is falling at the same rate, thanks to that good ol’ constant: g.
Several apples were harmed in the making of this story.
