  • - OH, BOY. - ALL RIGHT.

  • SO HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS.

  • I HAPPEN TO HAVE SOME FIRE OVER HERE,

  • AND IT'S SITTING ON A LAZY SUSAN.

  • SO I WANTED TO SHOW YOU WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

  • WHEN IT KIND OF SPINS.

  • SO YOU SEE THE SPINNING ACTION THAT'S THERE?

  • - MM-HMM. - THAT'S NOT ALL THAT EXCITING.

  • BUT IF YOU COULD IMAGINE THIS BEING A FIRE, UNFORTUNATELY,

  • IN A FOREST, AND THERE'S TREES ALL THE WAY AROUND,

  • IT GETS TO HAVE THIS KIND OF A VORTEX ACTION.

  • AND IT'S HARD TO SHOW YOU HERE WHEN IT'S SO SMALL,

  • SO THAT'S WHY WE MADE IT BIGGER OVER HERE.

  • - YEP. - SO COME HERE.

  • TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. SEE? THIS IS A CAGE.

  • AND I WANT THIS TO REPRESENT TREES,

  • AND SO AS THE WIND KIND OF HITS IT,

  • IT SENDS IT IN THIS CIRCULAR MOTION,

  • SO THE FIRE'S GONNA BE DOWN THERE,

  • BUT THEN WE'RE GONNA START TO SPIN THIS CAGE,

  • AND AS WE SPIN THE CAGE, YOU'RE GONNA GET SOME MOMENTUM,

  • AND I WANT YOU TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS

  • WHEN THEY CALL IT A FIRE VORTEX.

  • OKAY, ALL RIGHT, SO LET ME OPEN THIS UP.

  • OKAY, YOU STAND BACK. - OKAY.

  • - OKAY, HERE WE GO. NICE.

  • SO NOW-- HERE, WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

  • IT'S OKAY. YOU CAN COME HERE. IT'S FINE.

  • - THAT'S OKAY. - ALL RIGHT, SO IT STARTS--

  • HONESTLY. TRUST ME. - OKAY.

  • - YOU STILL TRUST ME, DON'T YOU?

  • WATCH THIS. IT'S A SLOW TURN, BUT WATCH.

  • WE START TO GET THIS WHIP,

  • AND THEN IT'S GONNA GO A LITTLE FASTER, A LITTLE FASTER.

  • YOU'RE GONNA START TO SEE, THIS VORTEX STARTS--

  • - WOW. - OH, HERE IT GOES.

  • A LITTLE FASTER, LITTLE FASTER. IT REALLY--

  • SEE HOW IT STARTS TO DANCE WITH THIS VORTEX THAT'S HERE?

  • SO YOU SEE HOW A FOREST FIRE CAN ACTUALLY JUMP

  • FROM TREE TO TREE TO TREE ALL THE WAY THROUGH,

  • AND SO IT'S SOMETHING THAT FIREFIGHTERS HAVE TO FIGHT,

  • AND I WANTED TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE PHENOMENON LOOKED LIKE.

  • - THAT'S AMAZING. - ISN'T THAT AMAZING?

  • - THAT'S SCARY. - HERE WE GO. I KNOW, IT'S--

  • YOU DON'T DO THAT AT A PARTY, ALL RIGHT?

  • YOU CAN TAKE YOUR GLASSES, SET 'EM HERE.

  • - ALL RIGHT.

  • - LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT I THINK

  • IS ONE OF THE COOLEST DEMONSTRATIONS I'VE EVER SEEN.

  • TAKE-- - THAT'S SAYING A LOT.

  • YOU'VE DONE SOME COOL THINGS HERE.

  • - THIS IS VERY, VERY COOL.

  • YOU HEAR THE TERM SUPERCONDUCTOR.

  • HAVE YOU HEARD THAT BEFORE? - NO.

  • - OKAY, WELL, THEY TALK ABOUT SUPERCONDUCTORS,

  • IN, LIKE, ELECTRICITY AND PHYSICS, AND SO FORTH.

  • A LOT--I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT TRANSPORTATION.

  • SO THIS, FOR EXAMPLE, IS A DISC THAT HAS A SUPERCONDUCTOR.

  • IT'S JUST A MATERIAL THAT'S REALLY, REALLY HARD.

  • IT'S A COMPOSITE, AND WE SUPERCOOL IT HERE.

  • THIS IS A RAIL OF MAGNETS.

  • SO IF YOU'LL HANG ON TO THIS.

  • THERE'S ONLY ONE OF THESE IN THE COUNTRY.

  • NORTH MUSEUM IN LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA,

  • LET US BORROW IT FOR THE SHOW.

  • IT WAS ACTUALLY MADE IN TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY,

  • SO THIS IS THE SUPERCONDUCTOR COOLED TO 320 DEGREES BELOW 0.

  • I CAN TOUCH THAT PART BECAUSE IT'S GOT FOAM ON IT.

  • BUT NOW WATCH WHAT HAPPENS. STAY RIGHT THERE.

  • DON'T MOVE. [gasps]

  • AND THERE'S THE LEVITATION. WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT?

  • IS THAT JUST-- - WOW.

  • - NOW WATCH THIS.

  • YOU CAN ACTUALLY PIN IT IN PLACE.

  • SO IT SITS HERE LIKE THIS, OR I CAN PIN IT THIS WAY,

  • OR I CAN PIN IT THIS WAY, WHICH IS AMAZING.

  • IMAGINE A RAIL LIKE THIS-- AND IT'S NOT A MAGNET.

  • IT'S ACTUALLY REFLECTING THE MAGNETISM.

  • WATCH THIS.

  • IMAGINE A RAIL THAT GOES FROM NEW YORK TO LOS ANGELES.

  • THEY'RE SAYING THAT IN OUR LIFETIME WE MAY SEE A RAIL--

  • LOOK AT THAT, IT'S JUST FLOATING--

  • THAT CAN GO FROM ONE COAST TO THE NEXT,

  • 45 MINUTES, AT 4,000 MILES PER HOUR.

  • MESSES UP YOUR HAIR, BUT IT'S TOTALLY AWESOME, RIGHT?

  • SO HERE, WATCH THIS.

  • LOOK AT THIS OVER HERE.

  • I'VE GOT AN ENTIRE RAIL THAT GOES AROUND.

  • SO NOW WATCH. YOU CAN ACTUALLY FEEL IT.

  • IT'S OKAY FOR YOU TO TOUCH.

  • JUST PUSH IT A LITTLE BIT. FEEL IT?

  • - YEAH. - NOW PUSH IT AROUND THE TRACK.

  • - THERE IT GOES. - THAT'S VERY COLD.

  • - ISN'T THAT ABSOLUTELY AMAZING? HERE, WATCH THIS.

  • AS THIS ONE SITS HERE LIKE THIS,

  • LET ME PUSH THIS ONE DOWN,

  • AND THIS ONE'S UP AS FAR AS I CAN GET IT.

  • LOOK AT THIS, AS IT SPINS AROUND--

  • ISN'T THAT JUST AMAZING? - WOW.

  • - SO WHEN IT COOLS,

  • IT'LL SIT HERE AND KIND OF FALL DOWN THIS WAY,

  • BUT YOU CAN KIND OF SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

  • SO IMAGINE A RAIL BEING ABLE TO MOVE WITH NO FRICTION AT ALL.

  • MY THOUGHT IS THIS--

  • WOULDN'T IT BE FUN IF YOU COULD DO THIS?

  • AND SO I WAS THINKING, IF YOU DON'T MIND--

  • I KNOW THE OSCARS ARE CLOSE--

  • BUT WE DIP YOU IN THE SUPERCONDUCTOR--

  • IT'S FINE--AND THEN GET YOU KIND OF COLD, AND THEN YOU FLOAT.

  • - OKAY, NO. - OKAY.

  • - SO STEVE SPANGLER HAS ONE MORE EXPERIMENT

  • THAT I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.

  • WHAT ARE WE DOING?

  • - WELL, I WANTED YOU TO FLOAT,

  • AND SO WE MADE A LITTLE DEVICE THAT WOULD ALLOW YOU TO FLOAT.

  • FAIR ENOUGH? TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. COME HERE.

  • IT'S A HOVERCRAFT... - UH-HUH.

  • AND YOU CAN MAKE A HOVERCRAFT IF YOU WANT TO--

  • OH, DOESN'T THAT LOOK AWESOME? - YEP.

  • - COME HERE. I'M GONNA HELP YOU WITH THIS.

  • THIS ONE'S YOURS. - ALL RIGHT.

  • - SO NOW I HAVE TO HELP YOU KIND OF GET ON IT,

  • SO, HERE, JUST KIND OF, LIKE, STEP OVER.

  • SO NOW--YOU REMEMBER WE HAD ALL THOSE LEAF BLOWERS LAST TIME?

  • - YEP.
