    You can spend $1300 on gas but not $100 to fix the screen on your phone? Lol

    If liquid could not float on gas then air bubbles that you see underwater or in carbonated drinks would collapse on themselves

    Cody, my man. Why use a scene from the new movie? It's so much more interesting as a cartoon.

    when I first saw this video title I thought about how this would work and was thinking it would be an uncommon gas in order to work including things like a liquefied gas floating on another etc.

    Inhaling Xenon has the opposite effect of Helium. It makes your voice very deep. It also makes you a bit high. So better not do this on camera/youtube. Some short haloalkanes like Tetrafluoroethane have similar effects.

    Hi Cody!

    When you mentioned the density of SF6 I thought that liquid butane with a density of around 0,5g/cm³ should float on it. With it's room temp pressure of just several bar and a boiling point of around 0°C it's nearly as easy to handle as the mineral oil. :-)
    But I have no idea if SF6 would dissolve in it, or even react. So I would love to see you doing an experiment with it, at least if no dangerous reaction is to be expected.

    Great experiment, I really want to see Frobscottle in a larger chamber like to one Ben made for super-critical CO2 on Applied Science. Next if you can make a solid that is lighter than air, like a vacuum airship would use, but perhaps a superfine honeycomb holding vacuum inside the cavities and make it stable at room temperature and pressure then flying cars and hoverboards will really benefit :)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't you make air sink downward in water if you go deeper than the point of neutral buoyancy?

  • mrhomescientist
    mrhomescientist 1 day ago

    Really amazing work Cody. I never would have thought that was possible! That phenomenon where liquid and gas bubbles pass each other is mesmerizing to watch. It must have been pretty nerve-wracking handling those potential firecrackers though :)

    I'm surprised xenon is so expensive! We buy lecture bottles of SF6 for my outreach program, and they're "only" about $400.

    Cody, I just found a rock with a decent sized vein of gold in it while going through a mine spoil in the Rocky Mountains. I know you've extracted gold from many things and I wondered what you thought is the best way to extract it from the rock. Thanks

    Not sure you would want to swallow xenon infused liquids; xenon is a general anaesthetic- absorbing it through your small intestine would probably be bad.
