Join our resident physicist to chill out and explore a world below freezing. With materials so cold they can only be touched with cryogenic gloves, you're in for an icy treat!
The star of the show is liquid nitrogen - a unique element that's so cold, when poured out of its tank in a room temperature setting; it turns to gas before even hitting the floor - giving you the chance to frolic in a nitrogen cloud. You'll watch as it makes a surgical glove as delicate as glass, takes the bounce out of a bouncy ball and causes a penny to shatter with one strike of a hammer.
Did you know that 78% of Earth's atmosphere is composed of nitrogen? Learn more frosty facts about this important element at Sub-Zero.
