Steve Spangler Science: Exploding Pringles Can

What goes better with Pringles than a side of hydrogen gas?

It’s true that you can’t eat just one Pringle potato chip, and within a few minutes of popping the top, you find your whole hand is stuck in the can. Steve Spangler puts a science twist on getting the Pringles out of the can… and it only requires safety glasses, hydrogen gas, and a match. Who doesn’t like to see an inverted Pringles can launch into the air leaving the chips behind. And, if you’re really lucky, the chips are even stacked.
