Can you Walk on Water?

TheUlfG — April 28, 2010 —

Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport which is attempting to achieve what man has tried to do for centuries: walk on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. We are developing the sport from scratch. By accident we found out that with the right water repellent equipment you can run across bodies of water, just like a stone skimming the surface.

[Editor’s note:  you are asking how this applies to matters here on R3 now aren’t you?  ponder the piece and what is involved in doing this ‘sport’ and it will come to you . . .]

Now would you like to begin to understand the science between a drop of water skimming the surface?

(third video on Liquid Mountaineering Blog Spot – thanks guys for a great video and a little of the science behind it and for sharing your delight in and zest for life too!)

So is this video real or fake?  Comments welcomed~

  1. I was REALLY surprised! OMG.. talk about thinking “OUTSIDE the box!”. These guys need to come save America..It will take THAT kind of focus and BELIEF to do it =)

    Completely fake.

    The slow motion clip at the end proves this. There is a platform about 4-6 inches under the water.

    Empirical:… See More
    You’ll notice that they all fall into the water at EXACTLY the same place.
    You’ll notice that when they put there foot down on the platform, all downward movement stops immediately. They are hitting a solid object and pushing off of it. This is clearly obvious in the slow motion clip at the end.

    Circumstantial:
    The water is simply too choppy to have the surface tension required for this to be possible.
    We’re simply looking at a lake that has become very full and covered over a jetty that is usually visible.
    All the talk about believing in yourself, but nothing about the science of why this would be possible.

    If they could travel about 10 times faster across the water, and the lake was smoother, then it would certainly be possible though.
