Hammer and Feather

xmComic

27 Titanic

During one of the Apollo missions, an astronaut demonstrated that a feather and a hammer fall at the same rate when dropped on the Moon where the air is very thin. On Earth, due to air resistance having a much bigger effect on the feather than the hammer, the feather attains a much lower terminal velocity than the hammer.

In this comic, feather and hammer are depicted as a romantic couple. Standing at the edge of a cliff, the lovely feather muttered the famous line from the movie “Titanic”. Poor hammer. Haha.
