Educational Video: Guy Makes Translucent Rocket So You Can See What Goes On Inside

Being geeks doesn’t mean we only care about gadgets. Yeah, we’re called OhGizmo!, but if you haven’t noticed, we’re adjusting our editorial focus to encompass more than consumer electronics; geek culture and esoteric products are also fair game. So is science! And so are awesome videos like the one above. It’s a really interesting video made by one Ben Krasnow featuring a home-made acrylic hybrid “rocket” that lets you see what goes on inside as the gases burn. In the 5 minutes the video takes, you’ll discover that the device doesn’t actually contain any fuel: the structure of the rocket is itself the propellant.

It’s cool to watch. At least we thought so.
