18th June 2020: A stack of three eggs on the top of each other was recognised by Guinness World Records (GWR) as a new world record when Mohammed Muqbel, a 20-year old Yemeni national living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, successfully stack them into a tower.
Balanced upright, one at a time on top of each other in a single tower ensemble got the global recognition as the ‘Largest stack of eggs’. According to GWR, all the eggs had to be stacked simultaneously for at least five seconds, using fresh hen’s eggs, with a perfect, unbroken shell condition.
Mohammed Abelhameed was able to identify the centre of mass of each egg and stack them exactly so that the combined centre of mass of the three eggs was situated directly above the very small base of the stack. According to him, this requires high concentration, patience and practice.
