This is a video of the Physics Girl demonstrating all the pretty patterns you can make with some ferrofluid and glow stick juice. She explains some of the physics of what's happening to the ferrofluid and glow sticks while she's experimenting with them. TRUE STORY: I ate a glow stick once. Well, I didn't EAT it, but I did bite the end off and drink all the stuff inside. My parents must be so proud of me. "Who is that man?" Mom! "Never seen him before." Dad!
Hit the jump for the video, then let's all get together this weekend and see what kind of experiments we can do with all the unlabeled bottles in my garage.
Thanks to carey, who agrees glowing in the dark is cool, but being able to see in the dark is even cooler. I wish I was a cat.
