Video: How Ridiculous will blow your mind with the Magnus Effect

Do you remember the guys from How Ridiculous? You know, the ones who made a world record shot from 415 feet off of a dam? Well, they’re back for more.

This time, How Ridiculous released more of an informative video that will blow your mind.

There is a good chance you may have never heard of the “Magnus Effect,” which can be explained here. However, all you need to know is that it is amazing.

Because of the Magnus Effect, the How Ridiculous fellas were able to toss a basketball off of a cliff with a little bit of backspin. The Magnus Effect carried the ball and moved it horizontally an incredible amount as the ball hung in the air for 25 seconds.

It’s really mind-blowing and just goes to show that physics and a little bit of spin can make almost any shot a reality.

Check it out.
