Behold! The World's Slowest Rube Goldberg Machine

In our fast-paced, super-connected world, sometimes you've just gotta... slow down. Slow TV. Slow cooking. Slow parenting. And now: the world's slowest Rube Goldberg machine (a.k.a one of those Mouse Trap-like contraptions that takes hilariously complicated steps to accomplish a simple task).

Most Rube Goldberg machines take a few minutes to do whatever they're supposed to do, but inventor Bob Partington took a radically different approach. We don't want to spoil anything - just watch the video of his machine in action, condensed into a tidy three minutes, and smoothly soundtracked by Kanye West's, Drive Slow.

Our galaxy will seem a lot smaller in the near future as space tourism emerges as a new sector in the travel industry.

That's where experts like Frans von der Dunk come in.
