Popcorn Popping in Super Slow Motion

If you’ve ever made popcorn on the stove in a pot with a glass lid, you’ve probably tried your darndest to see what actually happens when the corn kernels explode. How does something so hard and inedible become something so fluffy and delicious? And even if you can get a good enough look without having your eyeballs seared by hot oil, nothing can beat witnessing corn popping in super slow motion.

So here you go! (You’re welcome)

Domain Eukarya, kingdom Animalia (Metazoa), phylum Chordata, class Mammalia, order Primates, family Hominidae, genus Homo, species Homo sapiens, subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens... essentially. I have a Master's Degree in Atmospheric science, which doesn't entitle me to be generous with my opinion, but my sense of self importance does! I love writing, I love science, I love reading, but I'm not nuts about long walks on the beach. Short to medium walks are preferable. This is my blog and I have something important to say: https://whybecausescience.wordpress.com/
