Exploding Balloons Filled With Non-Newtonian Fluid

April 8, 2016


This is a video of the Backyard Scientist and Mark Rober exploding a bunch of testicle looking hanging balloons filled with non-Newtonian fluid (a fluid that exhibits solid-like properties when stress is applied) in slow motion, and comparing the results to balloons filled with water. Obviously, the non-Newtonian fluid balloons are way more exciting to watch because water is boring. I don't even like drinking it anymore, I'm going to start drinking non-Newtonian fluids. Is chocolate milk non-Newtonian? What about Nickelodeon Gak? Bet I can drink more than you can.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to JR, who once took a bath in non-Newtonian fluid and said it was the least effective bath he's ever taken. Hey, just be thankful it wasn't shit.
