Dipping Apples in Honey on Rosh Hashanah? Israel's Technion Invents a New Approach


You can always rely on the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology in Haifa, to come up with unusual and complicated solutions to easy problems. 

For Rosh Hashanah this year, they're using two helium balloons to support a smaller balloon filled with honey. 

Then an archer aims a crossbow on which an apple slice is perched, and fires it into the honey-filled balloon. This all takes place in an open field where the president of the school is waiting to catch it and wish us a Happy New Year.

Enjoy!
