Home experiments: The non-popping balloon

Many great scientists like Albert Einstein and Marie Curie were inspired as children. Hopefully Dr Roger’s Home Experiments – conducted by the Telegraph’s Science Editor, Roger Highfield – will help to inspire the next generation of inventors.

  1. This guy shouldn't even be doing this, in the info it said that "will help to inspire the next generation of inventors" showing them that a water balloon won't pop while being held under a candle will totally inspire a 3 year old!!

  2. Here's a question for Roger Highfield….Can the balloon handle a low temperature for long enough to get the water boiled, turned into a gas, increase the pressure inside the balloon, and thereby increase the size of the balloon?
    I assume a typical latex balloon shouldn't melt even if the water is boiling at 100C

  3. @gulfland the purpose of life cannot be found in any scripture, only the means to control mankind.. or should i say the means to attempt to control mankind.

  4. no shit! you probably believe that this is such a magnificent science video and that you have accomplished something but my friend… i regret to inform you that you just look like an idiot by doing this…
