    In this video Gav and Dan attempt to land a coke bottle on the moon using a bit of butane. They came 238,899.99 miles short but it was a good effort. Follow us on Instagram! gavinfree

    Film a chainsaw cutting wood from the bottom pulling up. It looks so cool. Also a lot of angles

    Hi, what about doing the same experiment, but instead of turning it upside down, throwing the bottle up high, and it will flip up side down in the air. I guess it will shoot even higher that way!!

    I wish you put a go pro so that you will know where it landed.

    what Dan did wrong was that he flipped it to subtlety, should've do a movement where the g force pushed all the liquid towards the bottom, which would have more butane to react, instead of all that thrown away in the 1st second

    Add a nose cone, fins, and maybe a bit of rubber held over the opening with a rubber band. That'd be fun to try.

    What about drilling a 1/2" hole in the cap to see if it gives more propulsion?

    • MoJo Pro

      @gamergirl99 But you'd want a guarantee launch Everytime and too many trial and errors would occur if it were to break. Breaking would lose a lot of potential pressure as it wouldn't always break at a certain pressure every time. My physics class had a string mechanism for bottle rockets and it worked really well.

    • gamergirl99
      gamergirl99 2 days ago

      or covering the top with something that'd break when too much pressure is built up

    • MoJo Pro
      MoJo Pro 2 days ago +1

      Yeah that could help a lot but maybe they should have an uncapping mechanism pulled by a string or something to allow the butane and carbon to mix and increase pressure.

    I thought with flow through the venturi bottleneck, the pressure decreases but the velocity increases?

    So the fact that it’s a coke is irrelevant. You could do the same thing with any liquid
