42,000 Match Sphere Gets Lit

  • Опубликовано: 13 фев 2018
  • What happens when you start gluing matches together? Because the heads are slightly wider than the wooden bodies, they begin to form a sphere. This was an experiment in how many matches it would take to get all the way around to make a perfect globe. After months of gluing and gluing and gluing we made it to the other side. Then the experiment shifted to see what it would look like when this thing burned. Enjoy!

    The current climate model for the NOAA and the IPCC, according to this model this should happen sometime in the next 2 months unless the gubberment gives them 987 trillion.
    Also, no joke that is exactly how those organizations work.

    To light it up at the opposite side can get a very different result. It should be much faster and sound burnt because of the wind.

    Consider making some smaller versions and put them in a container where you can exchange the surrounding air with an inert gas and ignite them with a powerful laser pointer! (The chemicals used in a match head makes them self-oxidizing. This means that they will burn faster when deprived of the oxygen from the surrounding air)
