THE WORK CONTINUES

In '95 Dave wrote an article about an engineer pouring several gallons of liquid oxygen on a pile of charcoal to start it burning. Great article.

I thought he might be interested to know that on the youtube channel I work for, we recreated the experiment in all its not-really-at-all-safe glory to see it for ourselves. It was loads of fun.

Here's a link.

Anyway, I assume Mr. Barry is enjoying being retired and maybe he doesn't care to hear about stuff like this but I thought I'd pass it along in case. Been a big fan for many years.

Thank you!

Nate
