How strong is a giant solid glass ball / globe? We are going to use our 150 ton hydraulic press and 150 ton force sensor / load cell to find out in this crazy experiment! Can huge glass ball stop a 150 ton hydraulic press? That's the question!

Do not try this at home!! or at any where else!!

    • @Danny Dadog i was going for the most accurate in frame. cus he forgot to put it in the video

    • @GENERAL GOD Not exactly. The number jumps after the shockvawe throws the lcd. It shows 21T[EDIT: 22880kg most likely] when falling, but if it is a measure probe's latency, it means the top measurement probably doesn't show on camera. Might have our heroes had a technical short circuit and didn't save the top reading? Other factors can most likely diverge the real force up a bit, like shockvawe reflection on the press increasing the reading, but must be confirmed scientifically.😎🤓 How long is a piece of string..

    • Suggestions: Secure the box down so it doesn't hop. Next, line it with modeling clay or something similar to catch the shrapnel. Love the vids, keep up the awesome work! :-)

  • What if you add a suspension system to the box? So, as to absorb the momentum transfer from the explosions.

  • I suggest using rubber in the points where the ball touches de metal so to allow the pressure to be spread instead of start cricking the ball from a little point in the extreamities where the pressure is concentrated. For this I suggest using a small ball and be careful as the pressure needed might be much bigger.

  • It might take more pressure if you put pads between it and the metal so the metal can't easily scratch the surface. Obviously whatever you use for padding will squish flat, but it should conform to the surface.

  • Glass is both strong and brittle, depending on form and shape, and whether it for instance is hardened/ laminated or not. I guess this is also what we see here - the balls take a heavy load when pressed (the big one was impressive), but when they finally break, they explode and the tons pressed against the balls make them totally disintegrate. Great video. 👍🏼😊 Or - pretty good. 😁
