The weirdest little giflike video you’ll see this week, I reckon. Cat abuse? Yes, it has to be. No idea where is was done or why. Looks like Russia in the 1950s to me. I will guess that the reason they put cats under zero gravity was because they know that cats always self-right (instinctively turn and twist their bodies so that they are upright when falling). They realised that the cats would move around a lot under zero gravity. You can create zero gravity by taking an aircraft to a good height and then diving steeply towards the earth. For a short time the occupants are under zero gravity. It creates “microgravity conditions”.
Giflike videos are a newfangled thing. It is actually another example of copyright violation on the internet. Using online software anyone can download a segment of any video and reprocess the small segment to create a repeating super short video that looks like an animated gif. Animated gifs are just a series of still images in the .gif format joined together.
