    What if you make magnesium powered rocket?

    • Kumquat Lord says:

      Not really practical. Magnesium burns bright yes, but it’s not very energetic when compared to other fuels

    • GastCyning says:

      @Kumquat Lordput it in some water while burning in a confined space and you could probably get some thrust, but not really enough to do much with

  2. Pool chocolate bar Net says:

    Hey man – try pouring molten magnesium into a buckets of water ,liquid nitrogen, gas , and cryofluid

    *looks Outdoors into neighbor’s backyard* what crazy thing are they doing now *See’s fire* 911 there’s a fire outdoors in my neighbor’s yard

  4. AnimalRacer3 says:

    You should put melting magnesium in liquid oxygen

  5. NicoGJ says:

    Try putting out the magnesium with liquid nitrogen?
    Try making the magnesium even brighter with liquid oxygen

  6. retarded libtard says:

    Uses water to make fire brighter
    Brilliant outstanding move

    • Alex Buyita says:

      The Apocalypse the oxygen in the water I’m going to guess bc it’s hot enough to evaporate it instantly

    • GastCyning says:

      @The ApocalypseI’m a sailor, so I’ve been through DC classes where we learn about fires. When magnesium burns, it creates magnesium oxide, as they said in the video. What they didn’t say is that when the magnesium oxide comes in contact with water vapor, it reacts, creating magnesium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. Burning magnesium has a very violent reaction with hydrogen gas, which creates more heat and light. It’s the reason we just have to jettison (throw overboard) burning aircraft and other class D (metal) fires. Also, fun fact, magnesium doesn’t require outside oxygen to burn, so those jettisoned aircraft can potentially burn under the water for years

    • CJ Lilac says:

      They would pour water on a oil fire

  7. Anthony Williams says:
