Great Physics Experiments

The New York Times has an excellent article about the Top 10 Physics Experiments of All Time. What makes this article so great is that all of these experiments can be done by anyone with a curious mind and some patience. For example: In the third century B.C., Eratosthenes measured the earth’s circumference to within 5% merely by measuring shadows.

Interesting stuff.
