Roasting marshmallows with Bill NyeWe turn our studio into a lab during Bill Nye's visit just to see what would happen. Can we make some science with everyday household objects? With Bill, you betcha!
Bill you are a master at using everyday household objects to explain science. Yes, bananas are radioactive Yeah but moderation. So I rub this on my hair. And we'll have some, see they're repelling. But then if we put a piece of aluminum foil between them, then nothing happens. Wait, yes it does, the aluminum foil's doing nothing. I just learned something aluminum foils holds quite a bit of static. Yeah. Look at that. So if you are dietician at a cool, [UNKNOWN] balls are not equivalent to marshmallows. Here some carbon oxide. It's invisible! That's right, it's part of the problem, this people aren't taking it seriously. I'd get it down closer I think is getting [CROSSTALK] But I get right in there. [UNKNOWN] I think if you wanna roast a marshmallow [UNKNOWN] In there.>>You gotta get it in there.>> There we go.>>Yes there's some caramelization, yes my sister loves it that way. Blow it out and it's so good, yes so what she has done is taken the sugar and combined it with oxygen in the air at a high temperature and then the carbon is exposed on the outside. And that is gonna be yummy, are you gonna eat it? Yeah, man. That is freaking delicious. Have the littler one. The earth instead of the Internet, carbon, carbon, carbon Aluminum made of the stuff in the Earth's crust. It is one of the most abundant elements in the Earth's crust. What a party these humans have figured all of these stuff out. Did they do it by magic? No. They did it with? Science. Yes. Yeah. Thank you, Bill. [MUSIC]
