Last night, my Facebook feed started blowing up with pics of brooms. Why? There was a viral post that said NASA announced that your broom could stand up by itself right now, because of how the Earth was tilted. So, naturally I paused The Bachelor and had to put this to the test.

As you can see, it worked. But here comes the spoiler, it will work today, too. This wasn't some 'Limited time offer', from science. Most brooms can stand alone because their center of gravity is lower to the ground. So, science is involved in the magic of the #BroomChallenge, but it has nothing to do with the planets.

This is sill a fun trick to pull out at parties or maybe trick your kids into cleaning!
