Ken Denmead of Wired Magazine's Geekdad blog has posted a link to Home Chemistry this morning that mentions a thermite explosion. Theo Gray, he of the lovely Periodic Table, suggests trying some liquid nitrogen ice cream.
My list of goals for our Home Chemistry project, so far, does include freezing stuff and perhaps a small explosion. (I also want to try growing some crystals.) But nothing that risks life, limb, or the kitchen table.
So I'm taking suggestions. What freezing, exploding, or other experiments should we try -- or NOT try?
