Scientists Puts Own Life on the Line To Prove Point About Firing Gun Under Water

His name is Andreas Wahl and he's one physicist who's putting his money where his mouth is, so to speak. He is host of a show in Norway called “Life on the Line,” and in every episode he puts himself - well - on the line, in potentially dangerous situations to prove a point - all in the name of science (see 2nd vid).  Needless to say, do not try this at all! The video has been viewed almost 9M times already...

It's harder to create movement in water than in air, because water molecules are closer together than air molecules. To show the difference in resistance, physicist Andreas Wahl puts himself in front of a weapon submerged in water and fires it - on himself.

Physicist Andreas Wahl knows that things rotate faster when they approach a central point. Therefore he is letting himself be dropped 14 metres towards the ground - only attached to a loose rope with a weight at the other end.
