Coke & Butane = Slow Motion Rockets - The Slow Mo Guys 4K
Team Trees still going strong! Let's plant 20,000,000 trees!
In this video Gav and Dan attempt to land a coke bottle on the moon using a bit of butane. They came 238,899.99 miles short but it was a good effort. Follow us on Instagram!

    Wish someone would make a contraption to flip it 180 degrees perfectly and put fins on the bottle canted at about 1 degree to make it spin like a sidewinder.

    Most bottles (of major brands) are pritty high pressure resistant. The right bottle at the sweetspot of the right temperature can resist higher pressure then most advised pressure for tyres.

    I wonder what would happen if you made a small hole in the lid and placed it back on before turning it over......

    I would have liked to see what might have happened if they had screwed the cap back on the bottle before turning it over. If the results of doing so proved to be disappointing, the guys might have drilled small nozzle-like holes into the bottle caps and then screwed them back onto the bottles, before turning them upside down. It might have made the reaction appear much, Much, MUCH more energetic.

    We know what he meant by "caked in coke". 😏 There was a lot of Coca-Cola sprayed onto him that got sticky and partially dry due to the heat of the area's weather. If you thought differently, you're a sinner.

    A Venturi increases the Velocity, not the pressure.

    • UnitSe7en

      In which case pressure in the throat decreases. Yes, a common misunderstanding.

    should've taped some foam wings around each bottle with a cone on the bottom of each bottle, they would've flown 2 or 3 times higher

    maybe try restricting the opening. making it smaller or bigger to see if it effects the distance. like how much liquid put it. or maybe different liquids. and what if you leave the lid on and than flip it. boom

    it flies because of chemistry not because of physics 😂

  • opliko

    I kept waiting for them to use some kind of pressure valve on the end like paper or tape or something to increase the thrust, but I guess that wasn't part of this. Just felt like a lot of the potential thrust was lost from butane getting shot out before it vaporized

    what will happen if you turn the bottle upside down but with the cap,will it explode

    • 2Fifty

      it might do, or the lid might pop off and then the bottle flies

  • BrutePuvi

    I've heard of a lot of things before, coke and mentos, air pressure powered bottle rockets, but, coke and butane was never one of them.

    @The Slo Mo Guys can you redo this with nossle restrictions? Maybe different diameter holes drilled in the lid? For saftey maybe a rig that rotates the bottle for you.

    If they had put a small weight on the bottom of the bottle it would have gone in a straight line. A rocket needs to have its center of gravity in front of the center of forces.

    Guys, to you think you could do the same but... with more technical tecnic ? As... I don't know, a crafted tank designed for having a better longer "combustion time", or a better efficiency ? and perhaps a guiding rod ? But still, I had a lot of fun with this video ! Nice !

    The speed at which the butane infused coke bottle transitioned from potential energy to kinetic energy faster than the blink of an eye (at first glance it looked like it had just teleported) before returning to potential energy as it fell back down to the ground astonished me, seriously, how strong of a catalyst do you need for effects like this??

    Should’ve put tape in the nozzle to keep the coke from dumping before the reaction but it wouldn’t hold the pressure and make it a bomb.
