Tension and Release

Mark Bradford built the world's biggest, coolest catapult. But could the unlucky artist make it work?

Later, there would be other good moments. That night at home, Mark would play the silent black-and-white video for Elizabeth. On Friday and Saturday, he'd send other fridges flying further. And on Sunday, with his daughter watching, the weather-delayed Guinness people would film his crowning triumph -- 312 feet! six seconds of hang time! surely some sort of world record!

But in some ways, that first flight was the best. He was still immersed in the project, not yet thinking about his next conquest. As the white GE arced through the air, he felt the sweetness of release. Everything was cool. At last he was having fun.
