Whether you are a science student or not, gravity will not be an unfamiliar concept for you. Everybody knows the story of Isaac Newton sitting under a tree and getting hit by an apple on his head. Good thing for scientists and nerds, he discovered gravity and explored gravitational phenomena deeply.
It is a common believe that anything living near the surface of earth is attracted towards its center. But what if we tell you that there are places where this attractive forces of gravitation do not work? Yes you read it right. There are places free from gravitation pull and this blog will introduce to you those places in detail. Without any further delay, let’s get started with the list.
5. Inverted waterfall:
Whenever we hear the word waterfall, we think of water flowing down from a mountain or a certain height in the middle of a forest. But there is a reason why the word “inverted” is associated with this unique waterfall. This waterfall, situated in the Republic of Chile, flows in the opposite direction (upwards).
You would say that this thing is unexplainable and some people would say that it’s magic. In reality physics can logically explain all this. The thing which forces the water to flow in the upward direction is the strong gusts of wind. However, this water is not the only one of this kind. The same sort of waterfalls were witnessed in India and Australia several years back.
4. The mysterious place in Santa Cruz:
This mysterious cum horrifying place in Santa Cruz was first discovered by George Pruzon in 1939. While explaining his first experience, he told that he was walking during the day when suddenly he started feeling dizzy. Moreover, the needle on his compass started rotating vigorously without stopping. He was amazed by the thing that happened there. Eventually he bought a piece of land there, and built a house where he invited people to she the mysterious happenings and the miracles.
The news regarding these miracles spread very quickly and earned immense popularly throughout the world. Coming to what the miracle actually was. The miracle was that people can bend to many awkward angles without falling. As if the gravity is not working. The water tend to flow upwards and the rubber ball moved up on the inclined surfaces. Many people say that the abnormality is cause by a magnetic crater situated under the house. Even with different myths and hypothetical conclusions regarding this place, the gravitational failure is still a mystery. This is why the house is very popular among the tourists and even got listed among the historical places in California.
3. Mount Aragats:
These mountains are very popular among the tourists for the natural phenomenon happening in it. Talking about its location, Mount Aragats is located in the West Armenia, 30 kilometer apart from the border with Turkey. Everything happening on this mountain is contrary to what happens on the other mountains.
Well the cars stopped on the foot of the mountains itself moves upwards with its engine being killed. The river flows upwards, which means from the foot towards the top on the mountains. The pedestrians unsurprisingly say that climbing this particular mountain is easier than to go down the hill. The gravitational pull is nowhere to be found there and this is still an unresolved mystery for the scientist to find a solution to.
2. Magnetic Hill in Canada:
The New Brunswick province of Canada has one of the most mysterious places on earth. The gravity does not work on the route that leads toward this hill. The cars, even with their engine offed, start moving up the road without gravitational intervention. Think of yourself as a driver. You are sitting in the cars with your foot off the brake and suddenly your car tries to play tricks on you and starts moving on the road itself. People thought of many ways to explain what has been happening on the route.
Some people say that there are ghosts while some perceive it as an optical illusion and nothing else. Well optical illusion or not, this place deserves a trip. We would prefer you to go there and see what happens to your car when you put you feet off the brakes.
1. Hoover Dam:
The Hoover dam is one of the main tourist attractions in the eastern US. The size of this dam is gigantic, but the size does not matter because the sight that you might see is too spinning for you to consider the size. If you visit this place, do some self experimentation. Bring a bottle with yourself, stand on top of the constructed area, open the bottle and try to pour the water down. You will be amazed by the sight that the water instead of going down, will move upwards. The scientists have a rather satisfactory answer to this mystery. The answer is that the construction of this dam is such that the flow of air becomes way too strong.
The flow of air upwards trough the edges pushes everything upwards, hence nullifying even overcoming the gravity. It is not just the water; throw anything down there and it will flow upwards but make sure that nothing strikes your head because the push from the air is too damn strong.
