Puts life on the line? This may have been true back in 1602 when galileo was researching the pendulum but over 400 years later this is no longer a risky venture.

Taí algo em que vale a pena acreditar, a física pois acreditar em Deus é algo da mais completa ignorância humana, só os retardados o fazem.

Well I agree in theory ... but there are some things that could throw off the entire experiment. AKA real-life application. Immagine one of the beams would shift by a few cm ... those might be enough to give the pendulum some extra force.

No, there arent. There is simply no way how that wrecking bal can swing more, than it has before. Every possible way how that could be influenced would cause it to swing even less. The only possible way, how to make it swing further up and hit him would be, if they pulled it up a bit on the line, while swinging back to him. But as the ball is extremely heavy, that is not possible. So no, I would do this with a ball of any size, because there simply is NO way this could hit me...

If the I beam it was attached to (which looked pretty shaky) got shifted towards the guy when the pendulum came back it could have crushed his chest easily. Just sayin

Don't you think he tested it first without him being behind it?

The cable could have snapped just as it was coming back towards him. Although, I doubt that would be enough to kill him. Probably just some broken bones.

Im sure they tested the strength of the cable, beams etc.

If we are going into what could happen hypothetically, then the building could collapse, he could trip and fall into the ball, an old asian driver could appear, a rabit cat could attack him, he could spontaneously combust or an asteroid could strike him.

So yes, he may have been in danger, but not really from the pendulum, and not from much more than any of us are in at the moment.
