Foucault’s Pendulum

And yet it moves…

That earth rotates, although we do not sense that, can be seen in this old lift shaft by a Foucault’s pendulum (named after the French physicist Léon Foucault, 1819—1868).

We are deeply grateful to the Max-Planck-Institut für Chemie fester Stoffe for the realization of this pendulum as well as to Dr. David C. Lane for his friendly support.
