After coming across Curiosity.com’s cool interactive learning path on the topic, we now have a better understanding of the physics at work, and the dangers that could arise.

Watch the video and answer the age old question.

The BrainStuff – HowStuffWorks video does a great job of filling us in on the specifics, and making sure we keep things safe. That advice about not shooting a gun into the air in a place like Times Square? Yeah, that’s probably wise to follow.
