Here’s how to make a mini rocket using a bottle of Coke (video)

Forget the Mentos...


This is pretty cool.

A Russian YouTuber called Kreosan has discovered, most likely from months of messing, that if you add the volatile petroleum fuel propane to Coca Cola you get a pretty significant reaction that can propel a plastic bottle metres into the air.

It’s a little dangerous if we’re being honest, and we wouldn’t recommend it.

It works by spraying the top of the coke bottle with propane and turning the bottle upside down – thus creating a chemical reaction that sends the bottle hurtling through the air.
