The earth is brighter than the hand. The hand is backlight. There would be no shadow except on the backside of the hand, as I have it, except for the "thumb" which is lit from the earth and would cast no shadow into space.
Thanks. I'm disappointed, I'll admit. I loved this one.
This little office toy came out in the 70's and they sold like hot cakes. I can't remember the name of it, if anyone knows let me know, however, I do remember playing with it and watching the balls go back and forth. How easily amused we were in those days. Member reactions:
Very Cool Bob. It was called Newton's Cradle. I believe you have an extra ball added to your version...but that's good, you get more 'bang' for your buck. Newton's Cradle
Thanks for that slapshot, especially the link and I got the cradle design wrong. But the memory wasn't that far wrong.
