The flying chain strikes again

Do you remember the YouTube video from Marcel and the relevant publications on the flying chain? Well, the flying chain strikes again! The group has produced a new theoretical model for explaining the phenomenon that included the effects of fluctuations along the chain length. This model, backed up by experiments and numerical simulations, successfully predicted
