Idiotic or Inspired?

Pigeons In S-P-A-C-E!


As you will see, not actually space, but zero gravity, well, I suppose actually microgravity, or whatever, on the Vomit Comet. Or a Vomit Comet, probably there is more than one. The point being, if watching pigeons fly erratically while they float, accompanied by surprisingly well dressed bird handlers (especially considering that whole birds poop constantly thing), then hit the jump!

Plus, just for fun, cats too!

Videos are via the youtube of AirBoyd, and are excerpts from research at the Aerospace Medical Division Hq 657Oth Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories including these, effects of weightlessness on cats and pigeons in a C-131.

Lead image via soundcloud, and just as an aside, I have no idea who that guy is, but when I did a Google image sea?rch for “zero-g birds” looking for pictures of actual floating birds, that was in the top two and I couldn’t not use it.

  • Why does the first video flash a red screen with the word "Hypodynamics" for a fraction of a second before the video and voice-over both slow down (0:14)? Subliminal advertising?
