Frostbite Theater

Liquid Nitrogen Can Crush!

An empty, sealed aluminum can. A beaker of liquid nitrogen. Drop the temperature and let air pressure take care of the rest!

Announcer: Frostbite Theater presents... Cold Cuts! No baloney!

Joanna and Steve: Just science!

Joanna: Hi! Here's some footage that didn't make it into our last video.

Steve: While it didn't give us the effect we wanted, we thought you might enjoy it anyway.

Joanna: Enjoy!
