Oobleck in Water Rockets

Postby air.command » Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:39 pm

We've had a few requests now to try to see what happens when you put Oobleck / Magic mud / Slime (Cornstarch and water) in a water rocket. ... clearly not the most ideal rocket fuel. :D

George, I'm always amazed at the quality of your videos and, in fact, the quality of the experimentation you guys jump right into.
Really worth subscribing to on Youtube!
Well done, (as always)!

Thanks for the nice words Nic. We have fun doing the experiments and putting the videos together, often it's the only way we can get the kids out off the house and off YouTube .... uhmmm... no... wait....
