Aloha YouTubers, I am The Backyard Scientist! I like to make videos on all the crazy stuff I do. From exploding arrows, to making instruments, molten aluminum to science/chemistry experiments - I do it so you don't have to! I'm always thinking of more stuff to do, if you have an idea, id love to hear it! Almost everything I do can be considered dangerous!! If you insist on trying my videos at home, just remember- if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Electricity is deadly. Be safe guys :) I love email from subscribers! You are free to share / upload my videos on social media (FB,Instagram,Twitter,etc...) Only if: - you do not run ads on the video or page it's played on (No websites or YT uploads) Reactions, using clips in YT videos is OK as long as it doesn't violate the spirit of FAIR USE. - you credit my YouTube channel AND tag the corresponding social media site. - you may not sell my videos or edits of videos under any circumstance. Anything else, email me.

Video description
Aloha fellow scientists! Have you ever seen anything so cool?  So after watching NightHawkInLight's video I knew I had to do this. It was easy to do, all I needed was a TS8000 torch, and 10 feet of 7/8 tubing from the hardware store.

Inspiration for this video NightHawkInLights video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXoqw-_uDx4

The torch is self-igniting, meaning it has an electric sparker built in. When the button is pressed halfway, the torch mixes a perfect combination of propane and air into the tube. When the button is fully pressed the torch sparks sending a flame flying through the tube.

I tried to color the flame with some boric acid, and it turned bright green. NightHawkInLight gave me the idea to try powered charcoal to shoot embers and orange flame, worked great!

Well this experiment was not explody enough for me, so I used the same concept to build a propane powered cannon. This is honestly the best gas cannon I've ever used, it is just so simple. You could probably shoot 20 golfballs a minute the length of a football field or farther. The canon shot golf balls over 600 feet in the air!!

Im sure you can do tons of other cool things with this concept, let my know if you want me to try something!

Plans for the cannon - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXoqw-_uDx4
Different torches, and if they will work - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXoqw-_uDx4

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One important thing I forgot to mention in the video is the fit of the object in the barrel. If you completely plug the barrel the gas mixture does not enter the tube, because torch only 'passively' blows the mixture down the tube into the combustion chamber. All the projectiles i shot had some 'slack' in the barrel.

If you followed me on social media, you would have gotten sneak peeks for this video!

Making a Sword with THERMITE!

Usually Thermite is used to destroy things... Instead, I wanted to use it to make something to destroy things with. If you have never heard of it -Thermite is a mixture of Iron Oxide (rust) and Aluminum powder. When you ignite it a vigorous chemical reaction takes place which results in liquid iron. Its used industrially for welding metal, the military uses it to destroy enemy equipment, teachers use it for science demonstrations, and youtubers just melt stuff with it. I made a mold out of insulating firebricks, and set off the thermite over it to fill it with molten steel! David Collier...

Fire Vortex Cannon

Pretty cool huh? The fire rings are amazing! How do you guys like the new style of video? In this video I show how easy it is to make a vortex shooter out of an old paint bucket. All you need to make the vortex ring cannon is an old paint bucket, something to cut it with, and a garbage bag! Add a little butane and you can shoot fire vortex from across the room! Add some smoke and you can be shooting smoke rings! I drew inspiration for this video after attending a X-LABS show at University of South Florida. X-labs is...

My Homemade 40W LASER SHOTGUN!!!!!

Just finished building my 40W(!!!) laser shotgun!!! The output of this laser is complete insanity, and is made up of 8 parallel 5W laser beams totaling to 40W. The parallel beams are manipulated with lenses, sort of like how a choke modifies the spread of a shotgun blast. Follow me on Instagram to see some crazy stuff!! :D https://www.instagram.com/styro.drake/ The massive diode array is powered by a huge lithium polymer battery pack (capable up dumping 250A) and the laser array is regulated by a whopping 24 LM317 drivers.

Propane Fireball Cannon - How to Shoot Blue Fireballs!

Craig Beals explains how to make a propane fireball cannon using a propane torch, vinyl tubing, pvc and a soda bottle - and the science behind the combustion reaction that makes it work. Materials listed on my website at: https://www.bealsscience.com/single-post/2016/02/08/Propane-Fireball-Cannon More science experiments and how to instructions at: http://www.Bealsscience.com Inspiration from: youtube.com/KnightHawkInLight Note: This could be very dangerous - propane gas is highly combustible and should not be used without supervision and in a well-ventilated area.

Rocket Powered Fidget Spinner

Ok thats it, Fidget Spinner trend is over, cause this is the best one ever!! ;) I built a custom fidget spinner out of 1/4in aluminum plate and strapped 3 E sized rocket engines. Really, I just wanted to do this. I saw Stephens video and needed answers. Plus, this gave me an excuse to buy a Plasma Cutter ive been eyeballing for yearssss. (dont tell sandra I could have made this with a jigsaw..) The spinner has a 6 inch radius, so it travels ~37 inches to make a full circle. Its spinning 88 times per second...

CO2 Cartridge powered Rocket Launcher!

Im going to show you how to make rockets using CO2 cartridges. These are used for Airsoft, Paintball, and BB guns. They contain high pressure Carbon Dioxide gas behind a thin metal disc. If you puncture the disc, the gas will escape and propel the rocket fast! Its not a replacement for black powder engines, but they can be just as fun, just watch where they land! Oh and try not to get blasted in the face like I did. I think I got dry ice in my sinus :( Krusty Krab song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzMJk8nGpoc I read all my comments, but...

How to Make Bismuth Crystals

Bismuth ingots can be purchased here (this is an affiliate link): http://ebay.to/1iwwqji Bismuth is non-toxic and has a number of very interesting properties. For best results I recommend using at least 4 or 5 pounds of bismuth for the surface crystallization method demonstrated in the video. The deeper the pool of bismuth is in the pan the better, because the crystals will have extra room to grow before they touch the bottom. The more you use the more impressive your results will be. Some of you that are familiar with other forms of crystal formation may be thinking I gave bad advice...

Shooting .22 PELLETS Using NAIL GUN Blanks

It is not recommended you try this yourself. But if you still insist, please read the precautions below. We load up some .22 firearms with Crosman .22 pellets and drive them using "powder activated tool" rounds. (calling them guns would cause the masses to soil themselves in horror) These are used to drive nails into concrete or even steel. The lead Crosman pellets are about 14 gr. and fit nicely down the barrel of a .22 rifle or pistol. Snug enough to engage the rifling. This is really a hybrid...
