Pouring a Liquid Mirror in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys 4K
Gav and Dan get some mesmerizing T-1000-like shots of Gallium splashing around. Enjoy the infinite reflections as they destroy FIshows's compression algorithm even in 4K. I'd be better off burning this one to a disk and mailing it to you guys!
Thanks to American Elements for giving us this Gallium - www.americanelements.com/

    Where can you get Gallium and can anyone buy/possess it? I've got some pesky wild aluminum I need to destroy

    TheBackyardScientist made a video in which he constructed a squirt gun that uses pewter. If you guys (the SlowMo guys or the viewers) haven't already, I'd really recommend giving that a look while we're on the topic of liquid metals.

    in cases like this where youtube cant show what is happening, you should make a torrent file so we can download it and see for ourselves

    Very awesome footage, there. I want to see them do that experiment from Big Bang Theory, where Sheldon, et al make shapes appear from the special liquid on their sub woofers. I caanot remember the scientific name for them, I think it was something like, 'Newtonian Solids'.

    fun fact you are not allowed to transport gallium in airplanes. if it leaks it will literally start destroying the flexibility of the aluminum and make it brittle to where wings or fuselage break apart.

    Gallium is not as toxic as mercury, but, however, touching the gallium and then your nose and ears is a bad idea.

    "Scraping" away the "film" looks so extremely weird. Its like cleaning a mirror, but at the same moment you're slipping through it. Wiping away deeper as if the filth itself is being reflected in the reflection. Its so weird, but at the same time so cool
