North of the Equator, water flows down a drain counter-clockwise. South of the Equator it flows down clockwise. Doctor Cho and Professor Owen devised an experiment to determine which direction water would flow when directly upon the Equator. They went to conduct their experiment in the remote village of Bongol in central Sumatra Indonesia, which had a large concrete globe and triangular platform directly on the Equator that was an ideal location to conduct their experiment.

In the 45 degree heat of the Equator at high noon, history was made. The initial results of the experiment were astounding. At first the water did not flow down at all. Later trials showed that the water did not flow counter-clockwise nor clockwise, but rather straight down. The final results are inconclusive as the data is still being analyzed.
