Quoted from mof:

What does pinball have to do with science?
Pinball is a game where I test my understanding of a few basic scientific principles using only my observational skills, and hands.
While I am not a scientist, when I play pinball, I am actively predicting how the ball will move by tracking:
* spin (potential energy)
* vectors (trigonometry)
So for me, each pinball machine is a small science lab for tracking spin and vectors...

I couldn’t agree more. I’m not a scientist either but my all time heroes are Galileo, Newton, Einstein...who advanced our understanding of our universe to a higher level. Hawking might well join that pantheon one day. RIP

I like to think that Galileo, in particular, would have been a pinball wizard.
