So this is completely amazing. Destin from Smarter each day stopped via Orbix sizzling Glass in fortress Payne, Alabama to explore an enchanting phenomenon known as a Prince Rupert’s Drop. it sounds as if when molten scorching glass is dropped in chilly water it forms an object that’s almost completely impervious to brute drive, even a sold hammer strike to the heart of the teardrop-like form won’t wreck the glass. yet gently lower and even bump the tip of the drop and all of sudden all the thing shatters in an explosive chain reaction touring at a pace of over 1 mile PER 2d. Watch the video above to see the effect in a hundred thirty,000 fps glory. (by the use of the awesomer)
