Physics Girl – Can you push a spacecraft with light?

What if you could power a ship using sunlight instead of wind? Well in space, you can! Solar sails or light sails are pushed with light from the sun. Photons provide a kick when they reflect off the sail pushing the sail like an air molecule in the wind pushes a sailboat. Find out how a solar sail works and about the future of this technology!

Physics Girl – Exploding soda cans with electromagnets in slow motion

Watch a soda can rip itself apart in a fiery explosion at 11,000fps with a Phantom high speed camera. Running a current through a coil, produces an electromagnet. Turn up the voltage in this experiment, and make that current strong enough, and your electromagnet can rip a soda can in half. Or rather, make the can rip itself in half! This video was filmed at Arc Attack Studios in Austin, TX with Joe Hanson, Joe DiPrima, John DiPrima and Darren Dyk.
