• 55 Gallon Steel Drum Implodes| The Crushing Power Of The Atmosphere

    30,849 views 2 years ago
    In this video I show you how you can use the weight of the atmosphere to crush things. I explain why we don't normally feel the pressure of the atmosphere on us. Then I show how you can remove the inner pressure of a soda can in order to allow the atmospheric pressure to crush the can and implode it. I then take it up a notch and collaborate with Davey and April to use the atmosphere to crush a 55 gallon steel drum! It is nothing short of amazing to watch a 55 gallon steel drum implode! The 55 gallon steel drum implosion looks similar to the soda can except it is thick steel!
