Nice 1.

That wasn't the point of the exercise.

it sounds intuitive to come to this conclusion but we´re always smarter after the fact.


True.

I wish i'd thought of it earlier.

Can someone tell me how much it cost to research the breaking of this because if they want to redo the experiment then could you give them my number I mean it's not that hard. I actually do it all the time. I suffer with OCD and like to have my spagehttie a certain length and in most cases have to break them in half or at least break a piece off so yh I'm happy to help.

But in all honesty whatever it cost sounds a bit like a waste.

I would do it for less than you.

Off topic/maybe not but how do you break walnut shells so the two seed Kernel halves remain intact?
We don't have to post this in RATS do we?

Sounds perfect setup for a food based torsion bar suspension! I really wonder how much money was sunk into this, I’m all for fun science but to me that’s almost like folding a sheet of printer paper in half 8 times or whatever the number is, kind of pointless IMO. I don’t see many applications coming from this mighty achievement.

The physics involved in why the twisting of the material works may not only me limited to spaghetti, and maybe have other materials science applications as well. It could lead to better materials or better ways to manage materials.

Or not, but that's science.

No, its not a joke... or rather, I can actually see practical applications of the conclusions, in fields relating to engineering and material science.

Learning how to manipulate matter more perfectly, regardless of how idiotic the specific example may appear, is crucial. Just as the motion of planets and the concept of gravity can appear to a person as a result of some near magical interlude with an apple, many great and important things may come of things which APPEAR mundane, but have implications for the arcane of some significant import.

Correct.

The maths learned from this experiment will be the most important aspect.

If not. It cost 15m (according to Flyingclaydisk).

That's not a lot compared to wasted spending on war/defence.

No it doesn't. Its a waste of time claiming that be an original experiment. Every fiberglass manufacturer etc on earth has done all this experimenting, surely.

And what is pre twisted steel? The yokes are milled fro Forge and the tubes are hydroformed or seam welded.

Why would a driveshaft shatter? They aren't hardened, at all.

Only application that jumped right into my mind I thought it was pretty good, so down the line maybe we’ll get bio degradable torsion bars for armored vehicles made with big bundles of spaghetti! Still think this is right up there with the folding paper x many times just a silly experiment done for the sake of it which will not yield anything of any significant importance. Call me a pessimist but somethings haven’t been done for a reason the juice isn’t worth the squeeze.

Sorry i missed this.

I think the maths learned is more important than the spaghetti.

I have no idea what it will ever be used for.

Maybe it will end up being a pointless 15m wasted.

Hopefully they have learned 15m worth.

How much of the taxpayers money went for this bunk? I'd rather flush my money down the toilet then finance this kind of trite, ridiculous crap.

$15m.

You'll need a bigger toilet.
