Videos: Annual pumpkin drop a smashing success

PULLMAN, Wash. – The annual dad’s weekend pumpkin drop is a gravity experiment with pumpkins (and a watermelon and…) launched from 12-story Webster Hall at Washington State University.

Hosted by the WSU Physics and Astronomy Club, the event this year drew the attention of ESPN; the sports network featured the pumpkin drop during its televised coverage of the WSU football game.
