Cats in Zero Gravity

Yesterday I promised that there would be NO KITTENS on the new Atlantic Video Channel. Today, I break that promise. I challenged our Twitter followers to find "an intelligent, thought-provoking kitten video" and Michelle Legro (@michellelegro) did just that, with this unbelievable film documenting bioastronautics research of cats in zero gravity. You win, Michelle, you win.

Correction: The original version of this post dated the video from 1947, which is highly unlikely, given that this aircraft was apparently produced in the mid-1950s. Thank you to Jared Hertzberg for pointing this out -- and bonus points for anyone who can tell us the real year when this video was made. Let us know in the comments field below or tweet us: @TheAtlanticVID.
