Starship gave us quite a show during today’s first flight test of a fully integrated Starship and Super Heavy rocket from Starbase in Texas.
At 8:33 a.m. CT, Starship successfully lifted off from the orbital launch pad for the first time. The vehicle cleared the pad and beach as Starship climbed to an apogee of ~39 km over the Gulf of Mexico – the highest of any Starship to-date. The vehicle experienced multiple engines out during the flight test, lost altitude, and began to tumble. The flight termination system was commanded on both the booster and ship. As is standard procedure, the pad and surrounding area was cleared well in advance of the test, and we expect the road and beach near the pad to remain closed until tomorrow.
With a test like this, success comes from what we learn, and we learned a tremendous amount about the vehicle and ground systems today that will help us improve on future flights of Starship.
Thank you to our customers, Cameron County, and the wider community for the continued support and encouragement. And congratulations to the entire SpaceX team on an exciting first flight test of Starship!

In this video, I show you some transparent metal and talk about why metals are usually opaque. The method for supporting the weight of the metal is to use a polymer scaffolding. This gives the metal enough support to be transparent.

I have seen many people on the internet saying that the "Fizz-Keeper" is a scam. After doing some research, I have found that there is some truth to this claim. The "Fizz-Keeper" is a device that is used to pressurize your soda with air. This can be dangerous because it can cause the soda to explode.

Check out Mel Science kits here: https://melscience.com/sBLW/ I show you how to turn the green from plants, red. I talk about how chlorophyll, the molecule that gives plants their green color, absorbs red and blue light from the sun. By extracting chlorophyll from plants, we can see the other colors that the molecule absorbs.

I show you how Zinc Oxide changes color when heated and then changes back. I try the same reaction in a vacuum chamber. Get the same results.
