This experiment has been going on continuously since 1927: the Pitch Drop experiment

The world's longest running experiment was started by Thomas Parnell of the University of Queensland in 1927 to prove that tar pitch, a seemingly brittle coal derivative that can be shattered with a hammer at room temperature, is, in.

The University of Queensland started the pitch-drop experiment way back in the year 1927 and has been a source of undying frustration for a .

The pitch drop experiment is an experiment that has been running continuously since It is attempting to measure the viscosity of pitch, or asphalt, which generates one drop every 10 years or so. Pitch is 20 BILLION times more viscous than water.

Pitch Drop Experiment - the worlds oldest experiment (started in 1927).  The experiment demonstrates the fluidity and high viscosity of pitch, a derivative of tar once used for waterproofing boats.

Nature of solids and liquids explored through new pitch drop experiment

Physicists at Queen Mary University of London have set up a new pitch drop experiment for students to explore the difference between solid and liquids.

Eighty-five years so far. The pitch-drop experiment—really more of a demonstration—began in 1927 when Thomas Parnell, a physics professor at the University of Queensland in Australia, set out to show his students that tar pitch, a derivative of coal so brittle that it can be smashed to pieces with a hammer, is in fact a highly viscous fluid. It flows at room temperature, albeit extremely slowly. Parnell melted the pitch, poured it in
