It's an example of centripetal force acting on a closed string. It isn't actually string theory as in the idea of the universe being made of vibrating strings, it's a title pun.
What's happening is the string is being moved very fast in a circular or orbital motion. When released, that force continues to travel but it goes forward instead, and centripetal force makes the string follow that curved path. Imagine an arrow pointing forward in front of it. The force follows that path by going around the string and acting in that direction, and the string follows after it. That's basically it in simpler terms, but I'm sure physicists on here will tell me otherwise. I've just simplified it for you to understand.

Essentially the string just has a bunch of rotational inertia, and will keep spinning until something stops it (objects in motion will stay in motion)
When knocked off the fly wheel, the string maintains its shape due to the rotation, but starts to fall straight down (gravity).
When it hits the ground, it stays upright for a while because gravity needs to overcome the inertia that's causing one side of the string to rotate upward.
It only moves forward because it's rotating. If you spin a tire and drop it, it will roll forward. Same thing. The string would not move in a horizontal direction during freefall.

Are you sure it would, though? Increase in mass and density can increase the force in the direction it spins, but at the same time you should consider whether it will affect the speed at which it hits the ground or the time it takes. Make an experiment of it, see if you're right.

>Inertia is too confusing
>Let me explain using centripetal force.
Inertia is a lot more intuitive than centripetal force. Most high schooler's know newton's phrase about objects in motion staying in motion and objects at rest staying at rest.
The main point I was trying to get across was that the string doesn't start moving forward just because it's released.
After rereading, I don't think that's what you're saying - but with the way it's worded I can see how it would be easily misread to say that it does (heck, I misread it the first time). "When released, that force continues to travel but it goes forward instead," I now realize what you're trying to say, it just wasn't super clear.

Grammar includes syntax and semantics. Semantics are expressed through the syntax to a degree, but in order to be expressed in the proper symbols (morphemes), and sometimes in order simply to get them said correctly (let alone read correctly), the phonemes, they must be spelled correctly. Since the lexicon of properly spelled words IS part of the language, and grammar involves the totality of the language for normal use in communication, spelling is a very superficial, yet not for all that unimportant and still very integral part of grammar.
