Bill Nye Explains The Science Behind Exploding Spaghetti

You probably remember Bill Nye from when he taught you real things about actual science. But as it turns out, he also knows about — and I’m quoting here — “blowing shit up”.

To promote the charmingly-named charity auction, “Blowing Sh*t Up With Arnold”, everyone’s favorite Science Guy took to YouTube to explain the science behind explosives — in particular, what powered Schwarzenegger’s last YouTube video in which he blew things up.

If the video, and all its talk of shear stress and thermal capacity, has piqued your interest, you can enter the charity auction yourself for a chance to go explode things with Arnold in LA.
