General note

Educational science film depicting physical properties of gases. A flea pulls a massive dry ice puck in an entertaining demonstration of the exceedingly small force needed to accelerate and keep a nearly frictionless body moving. Includes a short excerpt of Inertia, describing the dry ice puck. (source: upenn.edu) “Trained fleas courtesy of Professor Roy Heckler Hubert’s Flea Circus”
