American TV presenters Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest recently had their studio covered in foam by the Largest elephant’s toothpaste fountain.
What on earth is an elephant’s toothpaste fountain?!
During the show, experiment expert Science Bob also shared some other interesting facts about the world of science, including how certain chemicals can change the colour of fire.
Science Bob and the TV presenters tried a smaller version of the elephant’s toothpaste, before trying the big one.
For the attempt, two buckets of the sodium were poured into 40 litres of the hydrogen, causing hundreds of gallons of foam to spread across the studio like lava!
In total, the fountain measured a whopping 13.07 m³ (461 ft³ 967 in³), earning a brand new record title for the hosts Kelly and Ryan, as well as Science Bob.
He, along with 30 other science teachers, hold the record for the Most ping-pong balls released in zero-gravity, where 2,016 floating balls were released in an anti-gravity aircraft!
