Pitch drop experiment
The UQ physics department is famous for its pitch drop experiment, which has been running since 1927 and has been described as the longest-running laboratory experiment in the world. It demonstrates that pitch is a liquid that flows at room temperature—just very very slowly. Only 9 drops have fallen in its first 87 years.
Professor John Mainstone was the second custodian of the experiment. I took some physics subjects that he taught.
