Introduction: Will It Centrifuge? (Part 1)

What happens when things spend five minutes at 8,500 gravities?

Shall we find out, boys and girls?

I was going to do this as a video, but since you can't actually see anything happening inside the centrifuge, I decided that would be boring.

    Thank thee.

    Centerfugeing applesauce would be cool.

    nice,and the toothpaste is cool 5/5 stars

    ~~Now we go search for part 0.~~ Cool. +5/5 stars.

    Would it, umm.... Be possible to make a centrifuge out of a bicycle tire and a weedwacker, where the weedwacker holds the tubes and the weedwacker is the motor?

    Possible? Yes.

    Wise? ....I'm not so sure

    And do it all under a garbage can (for safety purposes).

    The walls of my little centrifuge are half an inch thick and seem to be fibre-reinforced.

    Your wackifuge has (potentially) much greater energy stored in the the rotor - I think it could put a sample clean through a garbage can...

    Ehh, I'll use some duct tape or something. I'm not concerned with safety.
