None of the Above Extreme Heat

None of the Above Extreme Heat

In this episode of None of the Above, Tim Shaw takes us on a thermometer busting scientific journey, from the all-powerful concentrated sunlight of a Fresnel lens to the incredible transformation created by the deep freeze properties of liquid nitrogen. In between he sets a flamethrower against an ice block with astonishing results, creates an eye-popping effect with ordinary corn starch, and risks his beloved Ranchero being crushed by cinder blocks.
