Internal Potato Gun Explosion Captured At 20,000 FPS [Video]


Destin of “SmarterEveryDay” created a potato gun with a clear plastic barrel in order to show the world the powerful forces that send spuds flying through the air.

Best of all, he filmed it at 20,000 fps, which provides a fascinating, and slightly terrifying, look at the combustion process. The experiment also determined that the location where the fuel and air ignite inside the chamber can have a significant impact on the gun’s launching power.

Check it out in the video below.
