Steve Spangler Science: Twist in Time - Laminar Flow

You’ve mixed colors, but have you ever unmixed and separated them?

It’s a demonstration that almost has to be seen in person to believe.  As you’re watching the video, please remember that there is absolutely no trick photography. When disbelievers see the demonstration performed, the reaction is nothing short of astonishing. A scientists, we know color mixing is not a reversible process. Mix red and blue and you make purple. Separating the colors back into their original form is not only tricky but unimaginable for many of us. Watch the video… you’ll see why we call it a “Twist in Time.”
