Steve Spangler Science: Magic Tube - Strong Tissue Paper

Believe it or not, you can make a tissue so strong that it cannot be ripped!

Tissues are known for a few things. For example, tissues are soft and nice for blowing your nose. Tissues are not, however, known for their tensile strength. Most people wouldn’t be surprised if a common housefly could tear through a piece. In the Magic Tube – Strong Tissue Paper experiment, though, we’ll show you a way to make tissue paper nearly impenetrable.
