Firelizards can suck

(The air out of marshmallows. What did you think I meant?) Electra rigged up a vacuum as you can see here. He then proceeded to demonstrate the properties of a vacuum like so:


Unfortunately, things did not go so well the following day. It seems he brought the pressure down a little too far and the glass lid you see in the above video imploded with spectacular results while boiling water at room temperature.

Yeek, exploding glass! Very nifty to watch the marshmallows grow, thanks for posting the video :)

Back in high school our physics teacher put little marshmallows in a vacuum and made them grow, then told us that's how big marshmallows are made.  She lied.

Interesting, sounds like AussieHusky knows how to make his own Nestlé Aero bars.

the implosion was spectacular. Where glass shards embedded in the roof.
