Foucault Pendulum

As part of the Kimball Natural History Museum in the Academy, the much loved pendulum is brought back but gets lost in the vast dead zone on the end of the large hall. Jean Bernard Leon Foucault, inventor of the Foucault pendulum, was born on September 18, 1819. The Foucault pendulum demonstrates the effect of the Earth's rotation, proving that the planet spins.
