This Is What Happens When You Drop A Basketball From 415 Feet.

A group of friends traveled to the Gordon Dam in Tasmania to set the world record for the highest basket ever scored, but they got a bit more. They put a small spin on their basketball to experiment, but what these boys (re)discovered is known as the Magnus Effect, first recorded by Isaac Newton back in the day.

 

What happens to this ball is incredible. Did they ever break that record? You have to see for yourself.
