Lighter fluid and Coke make unexpected bottle rocket — VIDEO

Everyone loves a good science experiment, especially ones with rockets. But this might be one that’s a bit too dangerous. 

Ukrainian YouTubers, kreosan, have a channel dedicated to makeshift, DIY, extreme home experiements, much like another YouTuber we’ve talked about before. 

In their latest video, the duo show us an easily prepared homemade rocket, using propane and a bottle of Coke. 

While the video isn’t in English, the procedure seems easy enough: pour out some of the coke and fill the rest with butane lighter fluid. 

When the bottle is flipped over, it creates a mega rocket. 

The different gasses in the bottle react and cause an explosion and while I don’t have the entire scientific explanation, the important part is that it looks awesome. 

Check out the full video.
