Through Glass – Slowly?Page 1 of 1    
I used to spend much of my youth at the Reference Library. It was calm and warming, though in a breezy part of town. And In taking a break from perusing The Codex To The British Pharmacopœa or what ever I'd be up to, I would look through the. single-pained windows onto the trees that surrounded the little car park to the rear of it. But about the turn of the century a new library with double-glazed windows was built next to it. It was nearly as nice as the old one. However, I noticed, that on taking my usual gaze, the leaves and branches on the same trees seemed to be waving considerably slower

On discussing this phenomenon (for it was unlikely to be the noumenon) with one of my peers, he said, without hesitation, that that was a well-known effect, in that observing movement through glass tends to appear to slow it down. And what he said rang true (in proportion to the number of panes, I think). But no-one else has told me this. Therefore, I'm fundraising for getting me to an exclusive hotel in Greenland, in which I'll be able to look at the movement of glaciers through triple-glazed windows. (There aren't no trees, you know). Now for the sake of science, please give generously
