Don't Try This at Home: Cracking the Secrets of Glass
Glass is a versatile, mesmerizing material that works in unexpected ways. In its molten state, it’s hotter than volcanic lava. But what happens when hot glass meets cold water? How big can a glass bubble get? What is glass made of, and how do you add color to it? Learn about all the ways that glass breaks—from the safe to the explosive. Watch Corning Museum of Glass glassmakers, Chris Rochelle and Eric Meek, work with glass live as they answer these questions and more.

This event is the second in a series of three virtual field trips highlighting some of the scientists and engineers featured in the new three-part chemistry series NOVA "Beyond the Elements." For more information about the series, visit https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/series/beyond-elements/.
