Liquid Nitrogen Experiment Almost Goes Horribly Wrong On Live TV

Liquid Nitrogen Experiment Almost Goes Horribly Wrong On Live TV



An Australian TV host came within inches of serious injury ― or worse ― when a science experiment went badly wrong during a live segment.

Science teacher-YouTuber Jacob Strickling was guest on the show “Studio 10” earlier this week, where he mixed liquid nitrogen into cola bottles, causing them to blast off like miniature rockets when he turned them upside down.

One of the show’s hosts, Natarsha Belling, held a bottle as Strickling filled it. However, she seemed uncertain how to hold it.

That’s when the segment almost took a tragic turn. Belling turned the bottle to the side instead of upside down, and it shot right toward her face.




I love science and all its wonders. But I think the guy was too pumped about this kind of experiment. IMO he shouldn't have assumed anything when asking her if she knew what to do. I wonder what happened to him after the show...funny how she was already inquiring about his insurance policy...

Love that movie!! Puts a funny twist on a real problem and highlights how dumb the "problem" really is.

Kind of reminds me of my kid brothers rocket that flew about 200 yards horizontally then turned back towards the house .It missed a large turret on the house travelling at what seemed to be well over 200 mph and crashed in the field in the back yard starting a grass fire . That was one of his more successful flights . The one previously got about 10 feet off the ground and then exploded sending plastic shrapnel everywhere including into his face . That is one of my beefs with the internet .A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing .

I watch a friend of mine do this to himself but with a mortar type of firework.
The kind that fire from a barrel and explode into huge balls of light.
Singed His hair.

That bottle took out a branch , it would have smashed her face.
People get lucky like that at least a couple times in life,
Everyone has had that experience where something goes wrong, and you come within a hair of serious injury or death.
That would make a good thread...

In 2 frames that bottle travels 15 or more feet. At 30 frames per second that would make it travel at over 150 mph, possibly faster than that. It would take out an eye easily, maybe even break your skull.

Yes, I've seen a good few videos that would qualify for the Darwin awards. "Shooting tannerite loaded into a lawnmower" Sent a blade flying through the air and cut his foot off.

I remember that video. Darwin award candidate for sure.

As for this one, I can not fathom for one second why the producers thought this would be a good idea. Espically being so close to the public. Utterly idiotic

The guy here wasn't dumb, he just didn't account for how dumb women are (Australian women especially so, it seems). I kinda wish the bottle hit her in the face, she might have had learned her lesson then.

In the video, you can actually see her grab his arm and push it away so that she could turn the bottle upside down - while he was still filling it with liquid nitrogen!

Maybe not dumb, but the blood that should have been going to power his brain was being deployed elsewhere.
