Cats in Zero Gravity

More

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. 

To suggest videos for the Atlantic Video Channel, follow us on Twitter. 


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.
