Implosion of an aluminum can

Amit Aravapalli, Rohit Prakash, Robert Watts

 

 

An aluminum can filled with steam was inverted in a container of cool water to create this implosion. The event was illuminated with 3 sequential flashes of light to show the progress of the implosion. Each flash was filtered with a different color to help distinguish overlapping images of the can. The can had originally been painted flat white in order to eliminate distracting detail and reflect the same color of light as illuminated it.
