Over the years, we love it when our “Experiment of the Week” just happens to fall on a holiday… especially April Fool’s Day. So, when we originally released this Hovering Plane video, it got over a million views in a week. We couldn’t keep up with the YouTube comments. People were buying fans… folding paper airplanes of all shapes and sizes… but they just couldn’t get their planes to fly. Then, we released the next video the following week… and people were beyond MAD! We learned not all people like a science-based practical joke, right?
