Since time immemorial, dry ice (also known as frozen carbon dioxide) has been used to create spooky fog effects for stage shows, nightclubs, and low-budget sci-fi movies. But did you know that with a little more manipulation, it can also create a giant bubble that looks rather like an exploding soufflé?
Our favorite video illusionist, the multi-talented Brusspup, decided to unleash his inner Mr. Wizard by applying an airtight layer of detergent and glycerine to a melting block of dry ice. The pressure of the C02 expands outward, creating a bubble that grows larger and larger until it finally bursts. And yes, you can do this at home -- if you're careful. Nifty!
