Frisbee Feats on Msn

pretty cool little video of physics and a little good publicity http://msnvideo.msn.com/?channelinde...c-d333a2e0f656


Hope this works...

Interesting little tidbit about spin and stability...

So faster spin means it fades harder...?

No it does not - He isn't talking about stability in the way we talk about discs being understable/overstable. He just means that the disc will remain closer to level with more spin.

Its all about rotational mechanics... Its the same reason a spinning bike wheel is harder to tilt than a stationary one.

So science stability and disc stability are different things?

Why did that link to a video about sasquatch DNA evidence for me

It means that it's like a gyroscope. The faster it spins/rotates, the more resistant it is to moving off it's axis of rotation. It means that it is more likely to stay spinning on its axis and less likely to drift off that. Stable in this example means not overstable, not understable, just stable; staying in place.
