Equilibrium

Science is awesome, what's even more awesome is learning how our bodies function and how it's form helps it to function in that specific way. Equilibrium, for instance, is the sense that allows us to maintain our balance while moving or even just sitting. Equilibrium is how gymnasts are able to balance while in a handstand split on a balance beam. Equilibrium is also how ballerinas are able to accomplish the phenomenon of dancing while balancing on a block of wood (pointe shoe).
