2009 NEESWood Capstone Test

They're going to shake a 6-story wooden condo to study how earthquakes affect the structure. The webcast is going to be at 11am EDT. Cool stuff! It reminds me of when Sun did a shake table test of their server container and found all kinds of stuff ripped out of place. :D
