Ghanaians join viral #BroomChallenge; here's what you need to know about it

According to countless internet users, an alleged post from NASA claims that due to the earth's specific tilt, a house hold broom can stand on it's own today and today only.

The challenge is dubbed #BroomChallenge and like the name suggests it's all about brooms but making them stand without any support. There was nothing special about February 10 that caused people's brooms to do this. Yet, out of curiosity or to play a prank on gullible minds, a lot of people are trying the challenge and it has become the latest craze on the internet.

But it's still a fun challenge! "OH MY GOD?!?! I REBUKE THIS #BroomChallenge #Gravity", she wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of her broom standing in her kitchen.

China blocks Foxconn plan to restart factories over virus worries - Nikkei

First of all, you can stand up a broom on its own (depending on the broom) any time of year. Some have used the standing brooms as standing mics or just pose by them for amusing videos and pictures which are catching attention online. The center of gravity on a broom is low and rests right above the bristles.

Have you seen pictures of your friends posting their brooms on various social media sites?

Al Roker tested the theory live on the Today show and debunked the claim when he managed to stand his broom upright on Tuesday.
