Mythbusters: The Creamer Cannon

I caught this on the Mythbusters last night, it’s one of the most extravagant explosions they’ve produced on the show. The way in which it hesitates and doesn’t completely consume the creamer is very intriguing.

From YouTube:

Season 07, episode 03. ‘Viral Videos’
Airdate: September 3, 2008

The Mythbusters test if they can create a ‘creamer’ cannon using non-dairy creamer, compressed air, and a flare. Watch how they create one of the scariest-looking explosions ever on the show.

It immediately reminded me of the following clip with Bill Nye the Science Guy, in which he performs a similar demonstration on a smaller scale.

From YouTube:

Bill Nye, “The Science Guy,” wants to help you change the world by showing green products that are better than traditional ones. Julie Chen helps him experiment on denim insulation and coffee creamer.
