Video: Watching dry ice sublimate (turn into gas instead of liquid) still manages to make me feel like a kid again. The kind of kid who is unsure of the difference between science and magic. OK, not quite … I’m old now and it’s impossible to ever look at things so innocently any more. But when I see the carbon dioxide gas immediately escape the frozen dry ice, I can’t help but be entranced. Especially when it’s shot up close like this.

I wish I could see the world like a kid again, but I guess I’ll just have to settle for watching dry ice.
