Places on Earth Where Gravity Doesn’t Seem To Work

Oh gravity you heartless so and so well that's what i think when i trip over a stone and fall face down of course i'm not clumsy you know anyway gravity is a constant right something entirely unshakable that we can always rely on in this ever changing world unlike you know love feeling romantic sorry .

But what if i told you that it's not as honest and clear as you think there are places on our planet where gravity behaves like it's gone crazy and that's why you clicked here so let's take a look magnetic hill in lay india there's a stretch of road in india that's been attracting tourists from all .

Over the world it's no different looking from the surrounding landscape and you could easily pass it by without noticing if not for one very unusual and a bit creepy thing if you stop your car on the magnetic hill going up the slope and put it on neutral it'll start crawling upwards eventually reaching the speed of up to .

12 miles per hour they say there's some sort of magnetic force at work here that tugs cars up the hill hence the name on top of that even airplanes are said to gain altitude above this place skeptics offer another explanation though it's just the lay of the land that creates an illusion of going .

Upwards well in fact you're moving down the hill and vice versa whatever the truth i'd like to see it for myself would you tell me down in the comments the crooked forest poland near the village of nova charnova there's a forest in the depth of which you can find a strangely looking pine .

Tree planted in the 1930s there are 400 trees that sharply twist to the north almost at the roots and then grow upwards in the semicircle although scientists offer different theories about the tree's weird growth nobody can say for sure what made them look like that .

Some say it's people who did it while others believe it's a gravitational anomaly that somehow pushed the trees down the trouble with this version though is that it would have had to stay there for years and that only affected the trees still no certain explanation exists anyways so .

Who knows a waterfall faroe islands ever seen an upward moving waterfall you can have a look at one on the faroe islands halfway from iceland to scotland but if you were expecting me to tell you an unbelievable story about a mysterious force pushing the water up the rock then sorry no such thing here the truth .

However is quite jaw-dropping anyway the winds in this place are so powerful that they lift the water and throw it back up i guess it was this kind of wind that allowed mary poppins to travel on her umbrella sounds good in fact this waterfall is not unique there are several more places on earth where winds create an illusion of defied .

Gravity for example there's the kinder river in england that has a waterfall constantly struggling with the wind it's so strong that half of the cascades water seems to just fly up without ever touching the bottom of the drop hoover dam in nevada usa if you ever get up to the top of the dam .

Which is about 726 feet high you can try a little trick take a bottle of water and pour it over the edge you'll see the water flow up instead of spilling down once again this isn't really any magic or unnatural phenomenon the wind up here is simply too strong for the water to .

Fall just like with the waterfall on the faroe islands here though it looks even more impressive since you can do it yourself ducapi road south korea another gravitational anomaly located on a road locals once found out that if you put an empty can or a bottle on the ground it will immediately start rolling .

Uphill unlike other such places in the world though ducabi road doesn't just create an illusion when you walk down the slope you don't feel as if you're going up everything's pretty normal but once you put down an object that can roll it will do that in the opposite direction than it should .

Local authorities were quick to get the idea and put a signpost directing curious tourists to the mysterious road golden rock burma if you happen to be in burma these days it's also called myanmar make sure to visit this well-known site a gold leaf covered boulder sits upon the edge of a cliff and a small pagoda .

Is built on top of it the impressive thing about the rock is that it only lightly touches the cliff for support in fact it looks like the boulder will fall any minute now but it has been standing like that for centuries on top of that the pagoda built upon it is not really a recent addition so it's quite an unusual sight .

To see the rock seems to be saying gravity i don't care about that stuff the legend has it that what keeps the boulder in place is a single strand of buddha's hair well i don't know about that but you can check out the rock for yourself and see that it's not attached to the cliff by .

Anything and yet it's not budged for 2500 years something must be at work here huh stone of davasco argentina if there ever was a thing that said i defy gravity out loud it's the stone of davasco the huge 300 ton boulder stands precariously on the edge of a cliff and .

Rocks a little bit from side to side in the wind people even checked it by putting glass bottles under one of its edges they exploded with another movement of the rock unfortunately today you can't see this wonder of nature as it was a century ago in 1912 the boulder suddenly dropped .

From its perch which it had occupied for literally hundreds of years the people in the nearby town of tando were so sad about this event that 95 years later in 2007 they decided to restore the stone well not exactly put it together chip by chip they made a plastic replica of the rock and put it on the same spot and .

Even in the same position so even today coming by tandel you can see its famous balancing boulder more of a symbol now of course because it's no longer rocking and only weighs 9 tons but instantly recognizable nonetheless devil's tower in wyoming usa remember this place from the movie close encounters of the third kind if not you .

Should go watch it but not right now this place doesn't make you feel like you're witnessing some magic and doesn't really trick gravity right before your eyes sounds almost boring compared with the rest of the sights on my list right but the true mind-blowing feature of devil's tower is that scientists can explain how it came to existence in the .

First place you see it's an 867 foot rock formation with walls so steep they're basically vertical but that isn't even the main thing this piece of stone just rose amid rolling plains of wyoming with nothing like it for miles and miles around so how is it that such a flat landscape .

Could have suddenly given birth to something so tall there is a bound but nobody has the answer yet my theory well perhaps here is where the earth has a giant audi belly button well then you come up with a better theory oregon vortex usa .

The house of mystery in gold hill oregon amazes its visitors with gravity-defying effects you can't stand straight there always leaning to the side and having to hold on to something for balance balls roll upwards and there's also a broom that stands perfectly still wherever you put it unlike virtually everything else in this shack .

The local native american tribes called this place the forbidden ground even before the house was built there and they avoided approaching it the owners of the shack though decided to turn it into an attraction and they succeeded they created an atmosphere of mystery around the place and spread the news about it in newspapers and later on .

The internet and voila a perfect anomaly is made in fact it's no more than a curiosity a human-made optical illusion that tricks your eyes in other senses hudson bay canada okay we've talked about some pretty ambiguous stuff but now it's time for the real deal the hudson bay anomaly .

This is probably the only place in the world where gravity is indeed lower than anywhere else on the planet even skeptics can't smirk at it because the difference has been measured with precision equipment so does it mean that the gravity here is as low as say on the moon then unfortunately or is it luckily i'm not .

Sure yet the difference is minuscule the exact value is 0.005 percent or one two hundredth of a percent you won't be able to feel it even if you try your hardest but it's still there scientists say this anomaly exists because of the ice sheet that covered the area about ten thousand years ago .

It compressed the rocks so much that they still can't fully recover shifting the gravitational field in hudson bay sometime in the future though the gravity will return to normal in this area as well no moonwalk for me then
