This is a question Home Science

Have you split the atom in your kitchen? Made your own fireworks? Fired a bacon rocket through your window?
We love home science experiments - tell us about your best, preferably with instructions.

Not seen that one before
presumably the water can't rush into the can fast enough to equalise the reducing pressure from the condensing steam?

I do a lot of this kind of stuff at science festivals as well (google EPSRC Noisemakers), some of your experiments are excellent (if sadly incompatible with the level of health and safety required for, say, cheltenham science fesival. I nearly got banned from there after a hymen piston experiment went awry)

Ah, you're one of the Noisemakers?
We've got some EPSRC funding, so regularly get noisemakers involved. Come to the Cambridge Science Festival - they're happy for you to do pretty much anything as long as it's risk assessed properly...

The NOISE programme's been pulled, sadly (or at least has no more money)
we only tend to do stuff of our own backs now, so I only tend to do stuff in Scotland for the last year or so.

Will you be at the British Science Festival in Aberdeen?
We do science news for BBC Scotland, so will be up there all week...

(I did wonder why the publicity chap for NOISEmakers had stopped calling...)

Not personally.
I was at Edinburgh Science Festival and then I was a judge for Big Bang Scotland so I can't really spare any more time this year, my research groups are getting a little twitchy...

There will be someone from my lot there for sure, though. Just not sure who.
