Remember that physics project I asked about in November, the one about dropping eggs off a football stadium? We just launched our ironically christened Egg Suicide Machine a half hour ago and it was great. One group used 30 eggs in a trash bag full of bean bag filling, with 28 eggs surviving. The other chucked an old couch with 15 dozen eggs duct taped to it and had 71 eggs survive. The Egg Suicide Machine had 81 eggs to start and 77 in the end.

We used a Dell box with 7 rubber balls duct taped to the bottom. It also had dowel rods attached to the corners with trash bags stretched across them, similar to a glider.

I will try to post a picture of the device, but am not sure when it will be.
