Fun Science With Rob: Temperature

 

By: BLOODHOUND SSC – 1,000 mph car

Originally published on Apr 25, 2017

Our chief inspirer, Rob Bennett, explores how BLOODHOUND uses changes in temperature to make parts of the car fit together. Naturally, he has to experiment with liquid nitrogen to explain it’s cool properties.

How to control light with water

 

By: Physics Girl

Originally published on Dec 22, 2016

How fast is the internet? How fast can we send data? This easy DIY experiment allows you to control light with water! Drill a hole in the bottom of a 2 liter bottle, fill the bottle with water allowing the water to stream out the hole, and a shine a laser on the other side so it comes out the hole and follows the stream of water! Just like fiber optics, the laser beam gets bounced around, but stays within the stream. Controlling light in this way gives up the ability to send information MUCH faster, as opposed to sending a postcard via snail mail!

Also found this great video by engineer guy who set up the experiment much better than we did:

This is a demonstration of the Schlieren effect. This setup allows you to see changes in air density. The point light source is aimed at the concave mirror. The concave mirror reflects to a focal point. There you use a sharp edged object to partially block the light which helps create a shadow effect that allows you to see air movement.

RED 4K Camera Captures Riveting Footage of Unique Fluid Behavior in Space Laboratory

 

By: ReelNASA

Originally published on Jul 27, 2015

Astronauts on the International Space Station dissolved an effervescent tablet in a floating ball of water, and captured images using a camera capable of recording four times the resolution of normal high-definition cameras. This footage is one of the first of its kind. The cameras are being evaluated for capturing science data and vehicle operations by engineers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

*To view in 4k, be sure to change resolution under “Settings” menu in YouTube viewer to “2160p 4k”.
