This video shows a time-lapse sequence that spans several days in the life of a recent centrifuge model test. The camera is focused on a model that is placed on the end of the centrifuge arm. You’ll see the centrifuge spin up and spin down (stop) several times, researchers working on the model before and after each spin, and the passage of nights and days as the test progresses.
