A group of young men appear doing a series of science experiments.

Phil is in her twenties, clean-shaven and with short curly dark blond hair. He wears gray trousers, a blue T-shirt and a yellow lab coat.

Phil says HAVE YOU EVER
DONE A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT
AND WONDERED IT WOULD BE
LIKE IF YOU DID IT BIG?
I HAVE.
MY NAME IS PHIL
AND I TAKE YOUR EVERYDAY
SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS
AND DO THEM BIG.

Phil appears under the water, in a skydiving chamber and on a trolley.

Phil says THIS IS SCIENCE MAX!
EXPERIMENTS AT LARGE.

The logo of the show appears. It’s a black and yellow triangle with an exploding element inside and a blue sign across that reads "Experiments at Large."

Voices shout SCIENCE MAX!

Phil says THIS EPISODE
OF SCIENCE MAX IS ABOUT HOT,
AND COLD.
A GIANT HOT AIR
BALLOON, DRY ICE,
THE COLDEST
TEMPERATURE POSSIBLE...

Phil wears a furry coat and says ABSOLUTE ZERO.

Phil says AND...
WHATEVER THIS IS.

Phil wears a patched suit and says BLUBBER SUIT!

Phil says ALL ON THIS
EPISODE OF SCIENCE MAX,
EXPERIMENTS AT LARGE.

At the lab, Phil says GREETING SCIENCE MAXIMITES,
MY NAME IS PHIL AND
WELCOME TO SCIENCE MAX,
EXPERIMENTS AT LARGE.
WE'RE GOING TO BE MAKING
ONE OF THE EASIEST
AND ONE OF THE HARDEST
EXPERIMENTS TO DO.
HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO
MAKE, A HOT AIR BALLOON.
AND IT'S PRETTY EASY TO
MAKE, THAT'S WHY IT'S ONE OF
THE EASIEST EXPERIMENTS, ALL
YOU NEED IS A PLASTIC BAG,
BUT NOT ANY PLASTIC BAG,
THE KIND OF PLASTIC BAGS
YOU GET AT THE GROCERY STORE
TO PUT YOUR FRUIT IN.
THAT KIND OF PLASTIC IS
VERY THIN, VERY LIGHT,
GOOD FOR HOT AIR BALLOONS,
AND YOU JUST WANT TO PUT TWO
PAPER CLIPS AT THE
BOTTOM OF THE BAG
TO HOLD THE BOTTOM DOWN.
HERE'S THE OTHER THING YOU NEED,
YOU NEED AN ADULT,
AND A HAIR DRYER.
TURN THE HAIR DRYER ON...
PUT THE HEAT
ON THE HIGHEST SETTING
AND THE FAN ON THE
LOWEST SETTING.
THE AIR INSIDE THE
BAG IS GETTING HOTTER,
WHICH MEANS THE MOLECULES
ARE MOVING FASTER
AND THEY'RE GETTING
FURTHER APART WHICH MEANS
THERE'S GOING TO BE LESS
OF THEM IN THE SAME SPACE.
LESS MOLECULES
MEANS LESS WEIGHT,
AND THAT MEANS IT'S
GOING TO BE LIGHTER.
THE BIGGER THE DIFFERENCE IN
TEMPERATURE BETWEEN THE AIR
INSIDE THE BAG AND THE
AIR OUTSIDE THE BAG,
THE BETTER IT'S GOING TO WORK.
SO I RECOMMEND DOING
THIS OUTSIDE, ACTUALLY,
ON A COLD DAY.
WHEN IT'S BEEN LONG ENOUGH,
TURN THE HAIR DRYER OFF
AND IT WILL FLOAT, HA HA!
NOW IT WON'T FLOAT VERY LONG
BECAUSE THE AIR INSIDE THE BAG
WILL QUICKLY RETURN TO ITS
ORIGINAL TEMPERATURE,
AND IT WILL NO LONGER BE
ANY LIGHTER THAN
THE AIR OUTSIDE THE BAG.
BUT IT'S DEFINITELY FUN
TO FLY FOR A WHILE,
WHILE IT LASTS.
SO, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE
GOING TO DO TODAY
ON SCIENCE MAX,
EXPERIMENTS AT LARGE,
WE'RE GONNA MAX OUT
THE HOT AIR BALLOON
AND MAKE A GIANT
HOT AIR BALLOON!

He puts on a yellow lab coat.

He says YEAH I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
THINKING YOU'RE THINKING PHIL,
THEY ALREADY EXIST,
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET
A GIANT HOT AIR BALLOON,

A picture of an air balloon appears on screen.

Phil says I MEAN THEY'RE BIG AND...
NO, NO, NO, NO THERE'S
NO FUN IN THAT.
I WANT TO MAKE ONE
I BUILT MYSELF.
I DON'T THINK I'M GOING
TO BE ABLE TO FLY IN IT,
BUT IT'LL STILL BE
PRETTY COOL I BET.
I JUST NEED SOMEONE TO HELP ME.
UM...
OH I KNOW, MIKAELA FROM
THE ONTARIO SCIENCE CENTER.
HOPEFULLY SHE'S NOT BUSY.

He enters a teleporter and appears in a museum.

A caption reads "Mikaela"

Mikaela is in her twenties, with long straight brown hair in a ponytail. She wears a white lab coat.

Phil says WHOA!

Mikaela says OH HEY PHIL, HOW'S IT GOING?

Phil says HEY MIKAELA, HOW ARE YOU?

Mikaela says GOOD HOW ARE YOU?

Phil says GOOD I WAS WONDERING
IF I COULD GET YOUR HELP
WITH AN EXPERIMENT,
DO YOU HAVE SOME TIME?

Mikaela says YEAH I'D LOVE TO HELP OUT.

Phil says AWESOME, OKAY LET'S GO BACK
TO SCIENCE MAX HEAD QUARTERS
AND I'LL SHOW YOU
WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO.

He takes out an electronic device that controls the teleporter.

He says OKAY, SO READY, HERE WE GO.

Mikaela says GREAT.

They appear in the museum again.

Mikaela says OH, NOPE, STILL HERE.
HUH.
STILL HERE.

Phil says WHY ARE WE STILL HERE?
THAT'S WEIRD, OKAY
I KNOW, I KNOW.

They appear in the museum again.

Phil says NOPE, WHY IS
THE CODE NOT WORKING?

Mikaela says I THINK IT'S
THE SCIENCE CENTER CODE.
TRY THE OTHER ONE.

Phil says OH!
IT'S THE LAB CODE!
RIGHT.

They appear in a warehouse.

Mikaela says PHIL ARE YOU OKAY?

Phil says YEAH.
ARE YOU OKAY?
YEAH, NO, I'M FINE.

They now appear next to a working table.

Phil says SO MIKAELA I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE,
BECAUSE TODAY I WANT TO MAX
THIS OUT! (TRIUMPHANT MUSIC)
THIS IS MY HOT AIR BALLOON,
IT WAS BETTER BEFORE,
BUT I SMOOSHED IT
IN MY POCKET, BUT,
WHAT I DID IS I USED A HAIR
DRYER AND THEN I PUT IT IN
AND I HEATED THE
AIR AND IT RISES UP,
SO IN ORDER TO MAX IT
OUT, PRETTY SIMPLE,
I JUST GET LARGER BAGS, RIGHT,
AND THEN I THOUGHT
WE COULD CUT THEM
AND TAPE THEM TOGETHER TO
MAKE A MUCH LARGER BALLOON.

Mikaela says IT'S A GOOD IDEA BUT IF
WE'RE MAKING A HOT AIR BALLOON
WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THE
MATERIALS ARE REALLY LIGHT,
THE DUCT TAPE SEEMS A
LITTLE HEAVY, EVEN THIS BAG
SEEMS A LITTLE HEAVY TO ME.

Phil says IN TERMS OF, OH YOU MEAN
THE KIND OF PLASTIC IT IS?

Mikaela says YEAH IT SEEMS
REALLY THICK THIS ONE.

Phil says WELL, DO YOU KNOW FOR SURE?

Mikaela says I'VE NEVER TRIED IT BEFORE.

Phil says ALL RIGHT WELL THAT'S
SCIENCE, WE SHOULD TRY IT
AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Mikaela says LET'S TRY IT.

Phil says OKAY.
SO I'LL CUT ALONG THE
SIDE OF THE BAG...
(ROCK MUSIC)

A caption reads "Science Max! Max Fax!"

Phil puffs some air.

Phil says YOU SEE THAT?
CARBON DIOXIDE GAS!
OUR BODIES BREATH IN OXYGEN
AND BREATH OUT CARBON DIOXIDE.
DID YOU SEE IT?
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK.
HOW ABOUT NOW?
NO YOU DIDN'T SEE IT RIGHT?
BECAUSE CARBON
DIOXIDE IS INVISIBLE,
UNLESS YOU FREEZE IT!
THIS IS DRY ICE,
FROZEN CARBON DIOXIDE.
AND THIS IS WET ICE.

He holds a slate of dry eyes with one hand. He wears a protective glove.

He holds a wet ice bar with his other bare hand.

Phil says IT'S NOT REALLY CALLED WET ICE,
IT'S FROZEN WATER!
NOW YOU KNOW WHAT
TEMPERATURE WATER FREEZES AT?
STARTS WITH A ZERO,
ENDS WITH A...
WELL IT'S ACTUALLY ZERO,
ZERO DEGREES CELSIUS.
AND THIS FREEZES AT
NEGATIVE 79 DEGREES CELSIUS,
IT'S MUCH COLDER!
I HAVE TO HOLD ON TO
IT WITH A GLOVE BECAUSE
IF I HELD ONTO IT WITH MY
BARE HANDS I'D GET FROST BITE.
SO HERE IS THE EXPERIMENT;
IF I POUR SOME LIQUID
WATER ON THE DRY ICE,
WILL IT FREEZE AGAIN?
LET'S FIND OUT.
(ROCK MUSIC)

A clip shows how the drops of water freeze from the bottom up.

Phil says BECAUSE THE DRY
ICE IS SO MUCH COLDER THAN THE
FREEZING POINT OF THE
WATER, IT BEGINS TO FREEZE,
FROM THE BOTTOM UP IN
ROOM TEMPERATURE AIR,
RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES!
WHOA!
TOTALLY FROZEN!
COOL!
COOL.

(music plays)

Phil says IN ORDER TO
BUILD OUR HOT AIR BALLOON,
MIKAELA AND I ARE TAKING
CLEAR GARBAGE BAGS,
CUTTING THEM ALONG THE
SEEMS SO THEY END UP AS ONE
THIN SHEET OF PLASTIC AND
TAPING THEM ALL TOGETHER
WITH DUCT TAPE INTO A BALLOON.
OKAY, SO THAT'S
NICE.
HOW MANY BAGS IS THAT?

Mikaela says IT LOOKS LIKE 12 BAGS.

Phil says 12 SO YOU THINK
THAT'S BIG ENOUGH?

Mikaela says I THINK SO IT'S PRETTY BIG!

Phil says OKAY, I THINK
WE CAN STOP THERE.
SO WHERE'S THE OPENING AGAIN?

Mikaela says UH, I THINK IT'S ON YOUR SIDE.

Phil says I HOPE YOU DIDN'T
DUCT TAPE IT.
NO, OKAY, WE'RE
GOOD, WE'RE GOOD.
SO IT'S GOING TO
INFLATE LIKE THIS,
WAIT A MINUTE, LET'S
MAKE SURE IT WORKS.
IS IT WORKING?

They start running with the air balloon over their heads.

Mikaela says UH, KIND OF.

Phil says LET ME KNOW
IF IT'S INFLATING.
(BOTH LAUGHING)
OKAY SO IT DOES INFLATE,
IT DOES HOLD AIR.

Mikaela says YEAH.

Phil says RIGHT,
SO SHOULD WE TRY IT?

Mikaela says YEAH LET'S TRY IT.

Phil says OKAY SO WE'RE GONNA
USE A HAIR DRYER, RIGHT?
AND NOW WE WAIT.
(ROCK MUSIC)

They start inflating the balloon.

Phil says IT'S WORKING, RIGHT?

Mikaela says KIND OF.

Phil says OH YEAH!

Mikaela says WOO HOO!

Phil says OKAY IT'S ALMOST INFLATED.

Mikaela says ALL RIGHT!

Phil says OKAY WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Mikaela says YEAH LET'S TRY IT.

Phil says OKAY ON THE COUNT OF
THREE WE'LL THROW IT OKAY.

Mikaela says OKAY.

Phil says ALL RIGHT.
ONE, TWO, THREE!

They throw the balloon in the air but it falls down.

(DESCENDING SLIDE WHISTLE)

Mikaela says OH.

Phil says IT DIDN'T QUITE...

Mikaela says NOT QUITE.

Phil says IT DOESN'T QUITE FLOAT.

Mikaela says IT'S STILL SO HEAVY THOUGH,
I THINK WE GOT A
COUPLE PROBLEMS HERE,
THE DUCT TAPE IS REALLY HEAVY.

Phil says YEP.

Mikaela says ALSO THESE BAGS
THEMSELVES ARE REALLY HEAVY.

Phil says OKAY WELL IF WE WANT
TO FIX THE DUCT TAPE
PROBLEM, WE COULD
USE LIGHTER TAPE,
LIKE WHAT IF
WE USED INVISIBLE TAPE,
OR AS I LIKE TO CALL IT,
"SCIENCE TAPE."
SCIENCE TAPE.
WHICH WOULD BE
LIGHTER THAN DUCT TAPE.

Mikaela says THAT'S A GOOD PLAN.

Phil says BUT WHAT DO WE
DO ABOUT THE BAGS?

Mikaela says HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
THOSE DRY CLEANING BAGS?

Phil says OH WAIT!
I'VE GOT ONE, I'VE GOT ONE HERE!

Mikaela says COOL.
PERFECT!
HA HA!
PERFECT.

Phil says YEAH 'CAUSE WHEN I GET
MY LAB COATS DRY CLEANED.
SO LET ME SEE HERE.
OH YEAH THIS IS MUCH LIGHTER,
THIS IS KIND OF THE SAME
MATERIAL AS THE GROCERY STORE
FRUIT BAGS, RIGHT.

Mikaela says I HAVE A BETTER
FEELING ABOUT THIS ONE.

Phil says SO LIGHTER TAPE, LIGHTER BAG
MEANS A MUCH LIGHTER BALLOON.
OKAY, LET'S TRY IT.

The logo appears with the caption "Mini Max!"

Phil appears with a jar of water and a bucket of ice on the table.

Phil says THIS IS WATER.

He puts the ice in the jar.

He says NOW, IT'S ICE WATER, HA HA!
SCIENCE!
OKAY NO, THAT'S NOT
THE SCIENCE PART.
HERE'S SOMETHING YOU
COULD DO AT HOME,
GET SOME ICE WATER AND
A WAY TO TIME YOURSELF
AND STICK YOUR HAND
IN THE ICE WATER.

A timer appears on screen.

He sticks his hand in the water and says IT'S A LITTLE HARD TO STICK
YOUR HAND IN ICE WATER
FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME
BECAUSE AFTER A WHILE IT
STARTS TO HURT, BUT DON'T WORRY
THE PAIN THAT YOU'RE FEELING
ISN'T ACTUALLY BECAUSE YOU'RE
DAMAGING ANYTHING IT'S JUST
YOUR BODIES WAY TO TELL YOU
THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE YOUR
HAND OUT OF THE COLD WATER.

The timer stops at 18 seconds.

He says YEAH, YOU USUALLY CAN'T
DO IT FOR VERY LONG.
BUT SOME ANIMALS
LIKE SEALS AND WHALES,
THEY LIVE IN ICE
WATER ALL THE TIME.
THEY LIVE IN THE ARCTIC,
SO HOW DO THEY DO IT?
ONE WORD, BLUBBER.
BLUBBER IS A LAYER OF FAT THAT
PROTECTS YOU FROM THE COLD.
OR PROTECTS THE SEAL AND THE
WALE, WE DON'T HAVE BLUBBER
BUT WE ARE TODAY GONNA
HAVE SOME BLUBBER BECAUSE
WE'RE GONNA MAKE
A BLUBBER GLOVE!
BLUBBER GLOVE,
I LOVE SAYING THAT.
HERE'S HOW WE DO IT,
FIRST WE WANT BLUBBER!
OKAY THIS ISN'T
BLUBBER, THIS IS LARD,
WHICH IS ACTUALLY
ANIMAL FAT.
YOU CAN USE LARD,
YOU CAN USE MARGARINE,
OR BUTTER,
OR SHORTENING,
ANYTHING WITH
A LOT OF FAT IN IT.
AND REMEMBER, THIS IS MESSY,
SO DEFINITELY GET AN ADULT
TO HELP YOU.
SO WE'VE GOT OUR LARD,
AND WE NEED A BAG.
SO WHAT YOU'RE GONNA DO IS
YOU'RE GONNA TAKE A SCOOP
FULL OF LARD LIKE THIS.
AND GONNA PUT IT
IN THE BAG LIKE SO.
LIKE THAT.
THERE WE GO.
AND THEN YOU'RE
GONNA START SMOOTHING
OUT
THE BLUBBER
OR THE LARD
LIKE THIS.
BECAUSE WHAT YOU WANT
TO DO IS HAVE A NICE
THIN LAYER ALL THE WAY AROUND.
SEE STARTING TO WORK.
THEN SEAL THE BAG AND
TAPE THE EDGES, A
SQUARE OF BLUBBER.
THEN DO IT AGAIN.
HERE I HAVE TWO BAGS OF BLUBBER
AND I'VE TAPED ALL THE
WAY AROUND THE OUTSIDE
SO I HAVE, HA HA!
A BLUBBER GLOVE!
CHECK IT OUT!
SO LET'S TRY IT OUT.
I STICK THE BLUBBER
GLOVE IN THE ICE WATER.

A timer appears on screen.

Phil says IT'S COMPLETELY WORKING,
IT IS NOT EVEN COLD.
THE BLUBBER IS COMPLETELY
PROTECTING MY HAND
FROM THE ICE WATER, I'M NOT
EVEN REMOTELY COLD AT ALL.
THAT IS VERY FUN.

He takes his hand out of the bucket after a minute and a half.

Phil says SO, TRY IT YOURSELF,
A BLUBBER GLOVE.
NOW HOW DO WE MAX
OUT A BLUBBER GLOVE?
(LAUGHING MANIACALLY)
WATCH.

He now carries a cooler full of ice and he pours it into a water filled container.

He says WATER.
ICE WATER!
I KNOW FOR A FACT
THAT I WOULDN'T LAST MORE
THAN TEN SECONDS IN HERE
WITHOUT MY BLUBBER SUIT!
I'M GONNA MAKE AN ENTIRE
OUTFIT OF BLUBBER.
I'VE GOT THEM IN
LARGE PLASTIC BAGS
AND I'M GONNA GET COMPLETELY
SUITED UP IN BLUBBER
WITH THE HELP OF
TREVOR AND STEPHANY.
OKAY GUYS, SUIT ME UP!

Trevor and Stephany help him get in the blubber suit.

Phil says IT'S PRETTY HEAVY.
SO DOES THIS GO LIKE THIS?
[TREVOR] DON'T BREAK IT.

Phil says OH, OKAY.
TIME TO CUT BACK ON THE COOKIES.
NOW YOU'RE SURE THAT NO
WATER'S GOING TO GET IN.
ALL RIGHT LET'S DO IT.
BLUBBER SUIT GO!

He gets in the container and a timer appears on screen.

(STRUGGLED GRUNTING
AND LAUGHING)

He says I CAN'T,
OKAY.
OKAY HERE I GO.
IN.
OKAY SO FAR.
OH.
(LAUGHING TRIUMPHANTLY)
MY LEGS ARE WARM.
AND...
OH, BLUBBER SUIT!
I AM A SEAL!
ACTUALLY HERE I AM IN THE
ICE AND I DON'T FEEL TOO BAD.
BLUBBER SUIT WORKS.
BLUBBER SUIT'S
REFRESHING ACTUALLY.
I'M GONNA JUST SIT
BACK AND CHILL OUT.
WELL THERE YOU GO,
BLUBBER SUIT SUCCESS,
SEALS AND WHALES ARE ABLE
TO STAY IN ICE WATER
FOR THEIR WHOLE LIVES BECAUSE
THEY HAVE PROTECTIVE LAYERS
OF BLUBBER, JUST LIKE I DO.
OKAY SO NOW,
ALL I HAVE TO DO IS GET OUT.

He gets out after 5 minutes inside.

(LAUGHING)

He says BLUBBER SUIT!
OH NO!
MY BLUBBER IS LEAKING!
I'VE SPRUNG A LEAK, MY BLUBBER,
OH MY PRECIOUS BLUBBER, NO!
WHAT A WORLD!

Music plays as a neon science appears with the caption "Sal’s Science Shop."

Sal is in his twenties, clean-shaven and with short side parted dark blond hair. He wears glasses, jeans, an orange shirt and a green blazer.

He says OH HEY HOW YOU DOING?
OH SHUT THE DOOR,
IT'S COLD OUT THERE.
COLD ENOUGH FOR YOU, HUH?
WELL THAT'S NOTHING,
LET ME TELL YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT TEMPERATURE
WATER FREEZES AT?
YEAH, ZERO DEGREES CELSIUS,
BUT EVEN THAT IS NOTHING.

He puts on a furry coat and says LET'S SAY IT'S
WINTER IN WINNIPEG,
IT CAN GET DOWN TO MINUS 20,
MAYBE EVEN MINUS 40,
BUT EVEN THAT'S NOTHING.
LIQUID NITROGEN, MINUS
196 DEGREES CELSIUS.
BUT EVEN THAT'S NOTHING.

He now wears a space helmet and says THE VACUUM OF SPACE,
MINUS 271 DEGREES CELSIUS,
BUT EVEN THAT'S NOTHING!
SO WHAT'S THE COLDEST
TEMPERATURE...
WHAT, WHAT'S THE COLDEST
TEMPERATURE YOU CAN HAVE?
IT'S CALLED ABSOLUTE ZERO,
MINUS 273.15 DEGREES CELSIUS,
AT THAT TEMPERATURE
ALL THE LITTLE WIGGLING THAT
PARTICLES DO COMES TO A STOP.
EVERYTHING IS FROZEN,
NO MORE MOVEMENT,
NO MORE ENERGY,
EVERYTHING STOPS.
IT DOESN'T GET ANY
COLDER THAN THAT.
ABSOLUTE ZERO IS THE
ULTIMATE NOTHING!
BRR...
TIME TO GET YOUR MITTENS ON.

The logo of the show appears as rock music plays.

Phil says OUR FIRST
HOT AIR BALLOON DIDN'T
FLOAT VERY WELL.

Mikaela says IT'S STILL SO HEAVY STILL,
I THINK WE GOT A
COUPLE PROBLEMS HERE.

Phil says SO WE'RE MAKING
A LIGHTER VERSION OUT OF
DRY CLEANING BAGS
AND SCIENCE TAPE.
BOTH LIGHTER MATERIALS
THAN OUR LAST VERSION.
WE ALSO WENT FOR MORE
OF A SQUARE SHAPE
THAN OUR LAST VERSION
WHICH KIND OF LOOKED
LIKE A SOCK.
ONCE WE WERE DONE ASSEMBLING
WE GOT THE HAIR DRYER
AND TRIED IT AGAIN.
WHOA, IT'S SORT OF WORKING!

Mikaela says KIND OF.

Phil says IT'S INFLATING.
THAT'S SOMETHING.

Mikaela says THAT'S A START.

Phil says IT FEELS WARM LIKE THE
HAIR DRYER'S ACTUALLY MAKING
A LOT OF WARM AIR IN THERE.

Mikaela says YEAH.

Phil says THIS IS DEFINITELY WORKING
BETTER THAN THE LAST VERSION,
'CAUSE THIS IS SO MUCH LIGHTER.

Mikaela says YEAH.

Phil says WAIT A
MINUTE, ALMOST GOT IT.
THAT'S SORT OF WORKING RIGHT.

Mikaela says COOL.
KIND OF.

Phil says OKAY, READY?
ARE WE TESTING IT?
TURNING OFF THE HAIR DRYER.
(SLIDE WHISTLE DESCENDING)
IT KIND OF COLLAPSES THE MOMENT
WE TURN OFF THE HAIR DRYER.

Mikaela says NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED WAS IT?

Phil says YEAH.
I MEAN IT SORT OF WORKS.

Mikaela says THE THING IS OUR BALLOON IS
SO BIG THAT WE NEED TO HEAT
UP ALL OF THE AIR THAT'S IN
THERE, I DON'T KNOW IF THIS
HAIR DRYER'S STRONG ENOUGH.

Phil says I THINK YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT,
SO WE JUST NEED SOMETHING
ELSE THAT PUSHES HEAT.

Mikaela says YEAH MORE HEAT.
MORE POWER.

Phil says LIKE A HEATER OF SOME SORT.
YOU KNOW WE'VE GOT SOME HEATERS
UP IN THIS ROOM ACTUALLY
MAYBE I CAN JUST TEAR
ONE OUT WE CAN USE THAT.

Mikaela says I LIKE IT.

Mikaela says OKAY.
LET'S DO IT.
ALL RIGHT.

Phil says THERE.

Mikaela says YOU GOT IT.

Phil says AN INDUSTRIAL HEATER.
AND THIS IS GONNA WORK JUST
THE SAME AS OUR HAIR DRYER
IT'S GONNA BLOW A LOT
OF HOT AIR UP HERE
BUT THIS IS WAY MORE EFFECTIVE
THAN A HAIR DRYER, RIGHT.

Mikaela says YEAH WAY MORE POWER.

Phil says SO WE PUT THE BALLOON
OVER HERE, HOT AIR COMES UP
THE BALLOON INFLATES
AND HOPEFULLY FLIES.

Mikaela says HOPEFULLY.

Phil says ALL RIGHT LET'S
GET THE BALLOON.

Phil says SO WE PUT
THE BALLOON ON THE HEATER
AND TURN IT ON.
BUT...
IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE
MUCH IS HAPPENING.
THAT'S BECAUSE
THE HEATER PUSHES LESS AIR,
BUT THE AIR IS MUCH HOTTER.
WHICH MEANS IT TOOK LONGER.
SHOULD WE HAVE BROUGHT A BOOK?
BUT
SOON IT WAS INFLATING.

Mikaela says DEFINITELY A BETTER
RESULT THAN THE HAIR DRYER.

Phil says OKAY YOU READY?
I THINK IT'S GONNA WORK.

Mikaela says IT'S GONNA BE AWESOME.

Phil says ALL RIGHT?

Mikaela says YEP.

Phil says ONE, TWO, THREE LET GO!
LIFT OFF!
YEAH IT'S LIKE A
GIANT JELLY FISH!
UH OH, UH OH, IT'S
TILTING, IT'S TILTING!
NO, NO!
OH NO IT'S COMING BACK DOWN.
OKAY SO THE BALLOON
FLIES WHICH IS GREAT.
THE PROBLEM IS IT
TURNS OVER IN THE AIR.

Mikaela says YEAH I NOTICED THAT.

Phil says AND IF IT TURNS UPSIDE
DOWN THEN ALL THE HOT AIR
COMES OUT AND IT
DOESN'T FLY ANYMORE.

Mikaela says I WAS THINKING NEXT
TIME IF WE MAKE IT BIGGER,
WHAT IF WE HAD A LITTLE
WEIGHT AT THE BOTTOM
JUST TO KEEP IT STABLE.

Phil says OH YEAH I'VE SEEN BALLOONS
THAT HAVE SORT OF AN X
LIKE A VERY LIGHT WOOD THAT
GOES ACROSS THE OPENING
OF THE BOTTOM, MAYBE WE CAN
TIE A PIECE OF ROPE TO THAT
TO KEEP IT WEIGHTED
AND IF THE BOTTOM'S HEAVIER
THAN IT WON'T FLIP OVER
UPSIDE DOWN, RIGHT.

Mikaela says I LOVE THAT IDEA.

Phil says SO WE'RE GONNA WEIGHT
IT AT THE BOTTOM,
THE LITTLE X SO THAT
IT DOESN'T FLIP OVER
AND WE'RE GONNA MAKE
A BIGGER BALLOON.

Mikaela says WE'RE GONNA NEED MORE BAGS.

Phil says OH RIGHT, BACK
TO THE BAG STORE.

Mikaela says BAG STORE!
WAIT FOR ME!

A sign appears that reads "Please stand by."

Now Phil is in a kitchen wearing a red apron.

Phil says BEING A CHEF
IS MY ABSOLUTE PASSION.
AND COOKING UP SCIENCE
RECIPES IS MY SPECIALTY.
I'M BUSTER BEAKER, AND THIS
IS COOKING WITH SCIENCE.
(APPLAUSE)
STRANGE, THIS SPOON IS NO
SHARPER THAN IT WAS BEFORE.
OH HELLO, WELCOME TO
COOKING WITH SCIENCE,
I'M BUSTER BEAKER AND TODAY
WE'RE COOKING WITH COLD.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LEARN
HOW TO MAKE A DRINK COOL.
LOOK AT THIS BOTTLE OF LEMONADE.
IT'S WARM RIGHT NOW AND
NOT VERY REFRESHING.
SO WHAT'S THE BEST
WAY TO COOL THIS DOWN?
WE PUT IT IN ICE, RIGHT?

He puts the lemonade bottle in a bowl with ice.

(APPLAUSE)

Buster says BUT DID YOU KNOW THERE'S AN
EVEN BETTER RECIPE THAN ICE?
YOU CAN MAKE ICE COLDER!
IT'S TRUE, ALL YOU
NEED TO DO IS ADD SALT.
I'VE GOT A SECOND BOWL OF ICE
AND A SECOND JUG OF LEMONADE
AND I'VE GOT TWO
DIGITAL THERMOMETERS.
WHAT I'M GOING TO DO IS
ADD SALT TO THIS BOWL.
WHAT THE SALT DOES IS
START TO MELT THE ICE.
AND THAT ACTUALLY CONSUMES HEAT.
THIS IS CALLED AN
ENDOTHERMIC REACTION,
AND IT ABSORBS HEAT,
WHICH MAKES THE ICE COLDER.
AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS
BOWL OF ICE IS STILL
SITTING AROUND ZERO
DEGREES CELSIUS.
BUT THIS BOWL, MINUS
EIGHT AND FALLING!
(APPLAUSE) WOW!
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT,
MAKING SOMETHING EVEN COLDER
THAN ICE WOULD NORMALLY MAKE IT.
THAT IS THE WAY TO MAKE A
REFRESHING GLASS OF LEMONADE.
I'M BUSTER BEAKER, AND
THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME
ON COOKING WITH SCIENCE.

He pours himself a glass of lemonade and adds some ice cubes from the bowl with salt to it.

He clenches and says OH!

The logo of the show appears.

Phil says WITH OUR NEW
HEATER AND LIGHTER MATERIALS
OUR HOT AIR BALLOON
WAS FLOATING FREE,
THAT IS UNTIL IT TIPPED OVER.
WHEN THAT HAPPENS ALL THE
HOT AIR INSIDE ESCAPES
BUT MIKAELA AND I
HAVE A SOLUTION.
SO WE DECIDED TO BUILD AN
EVEN BIGGER HOT AIR BALLOON
AND ADD A WAY TO
KEEP IT UPRIGHT.
SO THE PROCESS ASIDE FROM
THAT IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME,
WE PUT THE END OVER TOP
OF OUR INDUSTRIAL HEATER
AND I'LL PLUG IT IN.

Mikaela says SHOULD I GET THE HAIR
DRYER AGAIN FOR GOOD MEASURE?

Phil says IT'S WORKING, IT'S INFLATING
BUT WE'VE GOT TO KEEP
FLUFFING IT UP
OTHERWISE IT JUST SAGS.
BUT YOU CAN SEE THE TOP OF THE
BALLOON IS DEFINITELY WORKING
IT'S A LOT BIGGER THAN
THE LAST ONE THOUGH.
DO YOU THINK WE MADE
IT TOO BIG, MIKAELA?

Mikaela says IT'S REALLY BIG.
I THINK IT'S WORKING.

Phil says IT'S DEFINITELY WORKING,
OH, PULL YOUR SIDE.
OH IT'S TOTALLY WORKING!
I'M SO SURPRISED THAT
THIS WORKED SO WELL.
SO THE STICK IS GONNA
KEEP IT BALANCED SO THAT
THE BOTTOM FACES DOWN,
BUT MIKAELA'S GONNA
TIE A STRING TO THE STICK
SO THAT WHEN IT GOES UP
WE CAN KEEP IT CENTERED.
OKAY THIS LOOKS GOOD,
WANT TO LET IT GO?

Mikaela says YEAH, ARE WE READY?

Phil says OKAY.

Mikaela says THREE, TWO, ONE.

Phil says WHOA!

They high-five.

Phil says YEAH!

Phil says SO LET'S RECAP.
THE HOTTER AIR INSIDE
THE BALLOON IS LESS DENSE
THAN THE COLDER
AIR ON THE OUTSIDE.
AND BECAUSE WE WERE ABLE
TO GET THE AIR HOT ENOUGH
AND THE BALLOON LIGHT
ENOUGH, IT FLOATS.
SCIENCE MAX,
EXPERIMENTS AT LARGE.
HOT AIR BALLOON.
THANK YOU MIKAELA THAT WAS

Mikaela says OH IT WAS SO COOL.

Phil says WAIT A MINUTE,
WHO HAS THE STRING?

Mikaela says OH MY GOSH!

Phil says OH NO!

The air balloon goes up to the ceiling of the warehouse.

Now the end credits roll as gag reels from the show play.

Phil says LARD SUIT...
AND AWAY!

He fights with a deflated air balloon and says BEHOLD MY GIANT BALLOON!

He tries to get out of his lard suit and says YAAAAAHH!
YEAH IT'S CALLED AB...

The spacesuit helmet rolls out of the table.

Phil says IT'S CALLED ABSOLUTE ZERO.

Phil struggles to get out of the lard suit and says PLEASE, LET GO...
OH!

He grabs the ice bar and says BY THE END OF THAT
MY HAND IS SO COLD.

With almost all the lard suit out he says WAIT I CAN DO THIS,
I CAN DO THIS.

Mikaela says SCIENCE!

Phil is finally out of the suit and says HAHAHA! FREE!
