Catastrophic Science

I admit it: growing up, I was a huge science nerd. So Sean Connolly’s The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science and The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science are high on my list of “Books that are Awesome.”

Our friends at Scholastic Book Clubs recently paid homage to some of the most dangerous scientific discoveries of all time with a demonstration of the Soda Bottle Rocket. If you like suspense, learning, and explosions, this video is for you.


Now if only I could convince the powers that be to let me spend a day channeling my inner mad scientist

    Really enjoyed this! Reminded me of experimenting as a youngster…and when my mate got a chemistry set for his birthday we were both in our element!
