The Screen Guide

What better place to help explain the concepts of terminal velocity and impact resistance than New York City, where 95% of people live in high rise buildings. Karl Kruszelnicki shows us how the combination of humans, high rise buildings, birds flying past open windows, cats and concrete pavements, gives us a ready made environment to test the aerodynamics and impact resistance of falling cats. With a mixture of scientific fact, theory and humour, FALLING CATS answers the eternal question 'Why is it safer for a cat to fall from a really tall building than from a shorter one'?
