The Big Balls Experiment May 2009

Pictures documenting our experiment (PI: Dan Durda, SwRI) measuring the coefficient of restitution of meter-diameter granite spheres. The work is being carried out at the San Antonio campus of Southwest Research Institute. To view, click on any of the dates below (day 1 is 0526, day 2 is 0527, etc.). These pictures were all taken with my iPhone, and touched up with iPhoto.

Check out the movie of our highest-speed impact!
