We’re really liking Discovery’s new show, Time Warp – it’s the perfect combination of science, woohoo! moments, and how things work. The hosts, Jeff Lieberman and Matt Kearney, both have an infectious sense of curiosity that make the show really fun to watch.
Do you know how your dog uses its tongue to drink? In what exact way a face contorts when punched by a UFC contender? What happens when an egg falls into the pinwheeling blades of a fan? Or an apple is hit with a bullet? Using the latest in high-speed photography, the Time Warp team takes some natural events (a cat licking its paw, a champagne bottle being opened) — and some not-so-natural (a water balloon to the face, a raw piece of chicken exploding) — and turns them into a thing of both beauty and learning.
Time Warp recently filmed EepyBird’s Diet Coke and Mentos fun – the episode is called “Stone Breaking” Do your own messy experiments with the Diet Coke and Mentos kit from the Maker Shed!
