No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.

Oh wow. Now someone please explain the science?

I think it has something to do with the fact that gravity is acting more on the uppermost part than the lower one, thus making it accelerate first until it becomes a closer part as a whole.

SCIENCE - Short answer: it’s funky shit involving the center of mass and different accelerations.

LONG ANSWER: due to the force in the spring itself, both ends are moving towards the centre at the same rate simultaneously as the centre falls at 9.8m/s^2, which causes the ‘top’ end to move faster than usual and the ‘bottom’ end to appear to go nowhere.
hey that wasn’t that much longer.

Aha, that makes a lot more sense when phrased that way!
