Columbus strength testing

When I first saw this picture on ZLOG I didn’t know what was going on, but it turns out that it’s a special bike which ‘measures strain at different points of the bike… hooked up to wires transmitting data back to the van’ – very interesting. Nowadays I’m sure most of these tests can be simulated and performed virtually, but it’s pretty cool that they used to do all of this testing physically. The whole thing looks like some weird life-support machine, great find!
