Comment on Video Demonstrating Convection, and approaches to understanding and visualizing

How to demonstrate convection at The simple materials are good, but you, yourself, did not explain what you were expecting, where the students and demonstrators were supposed to focus their attention. You said (don’t use purple shirt) and for this short video, why did you not go change your shirt and record it again? Or,

Comment on Making Petrified Lightning – application to solar system colonization, global needs and new industries

TheBackyardScientist,  Making Petrified Lightning …with electricity? at 3D printing metal. You can use metal or glass powders, control the current, and randomly choose next points – probably run on Arduino. You have all the skills and stuff mostly. Maybe someone already suggested. You might invent a way for YouTube viewers to work together, combine

Comment on Cat and Plasma Ball, Rotating Plasma Ball, Plasma Ball and Fluorscent tubes and bulbs, iPhone

Cat and Plasma Balls at The cat investigated all parts of the globe, power (it can smell the hands of the person on the plug most likely), and behavior (optical, response to touch and nearness, acoustic because its ears and nose can pick up more than our fat fingers) methodically. Its nose is rather

Comment on making rubies in a microwave oven

How To Make Ruby in a Microwave at It looks like the aluminum wire is burning (oxidizing) to aluminum oxide, and melting some of the close mixture. If you use coarse grained aluminum powder, and mix with the oxides, it might work longer and more uniformly. The melting point of aluminum oxide is 2072

Looking for low cost linear arrays of photosensors, maybe contact image sensor arrays

Jean, I want to find a contact image sensor CIS that has high dots per inch, large color depth (bits per pixel color) and fast speed (lines per second). I need three of them, and don’t know where to buy the parts. I just started looking and found that the mobile document scanners (Brother) seem
