If aliens came in liquid they would probably look like this. Ferrofluid was invented 50 years ago by NASA to have a rocket fuel that could be moved in zero gravity by a magnetic field. Today it’s used in hard drives, speakers, skateboards. There’s also reseach being done regarding using it in biomedicin to actually pilot medicine in body to reach infected parts of the body.
In today’s video we are looking to to the properties of the ferrofluid with different magnets and objects and try to transport it trough water. The ferrofluid truly looks amazing with it’s spikes caused by the magnetic field.
Below you can find two links I found on ebay where they sell small and big water balls
Big ones (Mixed colors, couldn’t find only clear):
These are affiliate links which means I’ll get small commission if you buy it.
See the water balls disappear when they are in water. It’s balls made of polymer that can absorb a huge amount of water. They then have the same index of refraction as water which makes them seem invisible when covered by water.

Here I try to ficure out with close up and slow motion what is happening when a popcorn goes from corn to popcorn. Very facinating. I can’t say that I get how it work even now, but I love seeing it pop. Do you know how popcorn works? Please comment and tell me.
I used my Samsung S5 to record this. I’ll get a better camera soon, maybe I will make a version 2 video then.
For this experiment we will use two ways, the first we use a candle and the other we will use the candle holder and some paper with alcohol on. What is happening is that the fire uses up the oxygen and creating a pressure in the glass that makes the water to go into the glass.
Always be careful when experimenting with fire.
Milk (or cream) + Food coloring + Dish soap creates great effects when combined. Beutiful and relaxing.
How would life like in reverse?
Here’s a reverse video of everyday things at home but in reverse.
