Scientist Shoots Himself Underwater — Just to Prove a Point

“Andreas Wahl is a daredevil of a scientist,” cnet.com reports. “He believes in the power of physics and isn’t afraid to put his own body on the line to demonstrate it. That’s why he willingly stepped into a pool, stood in front of a loaded gun and fired it at himself under the water.” According to the YouTube caption, he’s proving that . . .

It’s harder to create movement in water than in air, because water molecules are closer together than air molecules. To show the difference in resistance, physicist Andreas Wahl puts himself in front of a weapon submerged in water and fires it – on himself.

And lives! Who’d a thunk it? The SEALS for one.
