Watch the Pitch Dropô

This is the longest known, uninterrupted experiment in the world.

In 1927, an Australian professor put an extremely viscous liquid (asphalt, a.k.a. The Pitch, which is commonly mistaken for a solid) into a funnel and it has been slowly dripping ever since.

It has dripped a drop only 8 times since 1938, and has never been seen by a human before. Now there is a web cam, and you can watch it slowly drip.

Very exciting.

I bet the 1954 drop was incredibly exciting, since it was so far ahead of schedule.

Oh, I didn't mention that it's due to drop any moment now.

My favorite part about this is that there is already some pitch in the beaker below and it hasn't dropped since the year 2000. Pretty cool how that has just been sitting there, uninterrupted since then.

They must have been in a serious heat wave in the years preceding.
