A fighter jet pilot puts gravity to the test and attempts to drink a cup of water while flying upside down. Will it spill?!

It is these kinds of presentations of the awesome laws of physics that make our brains melt! There are several videos on the Internet where fighter jet pilots pour a glass of water upside down, while in flight, make us lose our minds! No matter how many times we watch this video, it will never cease to be friggin' awesome!

You will get to see the entire process with spectacular clarity: the pilot pours the water in the cup and drinks it while the plane flips around. Such a cool effect and absolutely zero CGI, it is totally legit!

Feel your brain melting yet? Here's how Wired explained it and quite well:

“If you could just see the water from a stationary reference frame (maybe a floating hot air balloon), you would see the water indeed falling down. Now, I remember that I said “falling down” and not “moving down”. The water actually might be moving up. The key is that even though it is moving up, it is accelerating down. The plane also is accelerating down. As long as the downward acceleration of the plane is greater than the water, the water will move into the cup above it.”

Share this clip with your friends so that your brains will be melted in sync!
