The Modern Alchemist: Hydrogen Balloons
Behind the Scenes of the 2012 Christmas Lectures
About this video
As the Christmas Lectures approach, the Ri's Andrew Marmery and Sean Thurston start preparing the demos for inclusion in the show.
With this year's Lectures unpicking the chemistry of the world around us, the pair head into the Theatre to demonstrate the explosive nature of Hydrogen (H), especially when combined with Oxygen (O).
We'll be filming more behind-the-scenes testing as the main event approaches.
Don't miss The Modern Alchemist - The 2012 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures presented by Dr Peter Wothers will be broadcast on BBC Four shortly after Christmas.
