Science Sunday: Cloud in a Bottle

This Science Sunday, Aoife Ryle and Mark Dixon give cloud storage a new definition. A simple bottle with an inner coating of isopropyl alcohol and a pump will do the trick. If you are doing this at home without the Science @ Home Activity Kit, you can use a bottle with duct tape at the top and a bike pump. After they pump the bottle full of air, they release the pressure creating a cloud in the bottle. Watch the whole video to learn more about how clouds are influenced by temperature change and our atmosphere, including more information on the Science @ Home Activity Kit.

There is so much more Science Sunday to explore. Check out the full gallery of segments on our blog:
