This is by far the best way to serve a can of Pringles. Inside of most large rockets is a supply of hydrogen and oxygen. When the mix of the two is just right, it creates an explosion with a huge amount of energy. In rockets, this energy get the rocket into space. In our little demonstration here, it gets the Pringles can to the ceiling.
Here’s how it works:
- There is a small hole in the top (really the bottom) of the can
- Hydrogen is pumped into the cans from the bottom of the can.
- Once the flame is lit, the hydrogen burns and air (with oxygen) enters from the bottom hole.
- When the mix is just right, off goes the rocket and it’s time for a snack.
