Science is Fun – Prince Rupert’s Drops

Ever wonder what happens if you drop hot, liquid glass into cold water? Yeah, me neither. I guess that’s why I’m busy writing this blog post instead of putting my science degree to good use. Lucky for us, the guys at SmarterEveryDay posted the video below to show us, in slow motion, just what happens when you break one of Prince Rupert’s Drops, the product of dropping hot, liquid gas into cold water. The video is fun and informative and the slow motion clips of the glass exploding is insane. Check out the video below and let me know what you think in the comments.
