Ottawa, Canada: Thanks to its immense size, Jupiter’s force of gravity is 2.5 times that of Earth. Neil Fraser set about testing whether this extra gravity would affect the functionality of a common lava lamp, but first he needed equipment that would allow him to replicate the gravity of the gas giant; so he built his on centrifuge.
The centrifuge is a genuinely terrifying device. The lights dim when it is switched on. A strong wind is produced as the centrifuge induces a cyclone in the room. The smell of boiling insulation emanates from the overloaded 25 amp cables. If not perfectly adjusted and lubricated, it will shred the teeth off solid brass gears in under a second. Runs were conducted from the relative safety of the next room while peeking through a crack in the door.
