In January 2007 the first pendulum was installed in the hall of the Valdivia Center for Scientific Studies, with a system of optical sensors, but without the ring of Charron, and was then replaced by the current pendulum that the CECS gave to the city and has been installed in The science coast of the city of Valdivia...

  • A nice scientific experiment to understand the rotation of the earth, well documented, hurts that one of the glasses that shelter from the wind to the pendulum this trisado, hopefully change it soon.

  • Lovely, I think that people should appreciate it more
  • Pretty simple location, but example to communicate science and how an experiment helps you understand, visually, abstract theories. Simplicity is on the stage, together with people wandering around. A good 10 min stopover.
