Group in Penang tries egg-balancing acts during lunar eclipse
Out of the five eggs tested, four eggs stood on their ends during the eclipse.
Wong Soon Aik, 22, an applied physics USM student, was by far the most successful at standing an egg on its end.
“I’m really happy. At the beginning, I didn’t think it would stand,” he said.
Astronomy Club of Universiti Sains Malaysia advisor Dr Chong Hon Yew however, denied the eclipse played a part in the egg-standing experiment.
