The Broomstick Challenge is all over my social media feed this week. They say the planets are aligned in a very special way which allows you to stand a broomstick straight up and down on its bristles. Scientists say you can actually do this any old time; it doesn't have anything to do with the way the planets are lined up. Most people just haven't taken the time to bother trying it, because most people have better things to do.

I, however, am just sitting here in a radio studio all by myself, so I decided to track down a broomstick in our closet here at The Sound and give it a try.

Science!
