The Action Lab is a channel dedicated to performing exciting experiments and answering questions you never thought to ask! I'll put things in my hydraulic press, vacuum chamber and perform countless other experiments just to watch cool phenomenon. I experiment on the world and objects around me. You'll be so amazed that you'll forget you are even learning anything! Please enjoy as I continually answer the "what would happen if..." questions you have. Feel free to comment with any scientific questions you have about anything. I have made my career as a PhD in Chemical Engineer and now I want to share how awesome science and experimentation can be!

Shining Light Through Solid Balls Using Quantum Mechanics—Poisson's Spot Experiment

In this video I show you how it is possible to shine light through a sphere using the wave-like nature of light. This spot in the center of the shadow of a sphere is called Poisson's spot or Arago's spot. It is a result of the diffraction of light around the edges of the sphere that constructively interfere right at the center. Then I show you what it actually looks like to look at the center of poisson's spot. Does it look like the light is actually going through the ball?

Can Flies Actually Fly in a Vacuum Chamber?

In this video I put flies in the vacuum chamber to see if they can fly in a low pressure environment. I also show you how I got the flies in the vacuum chamber by lowering their metabolism so that they don't move at all by putting them in the freezer. Then once in the closed chamber they warm up and come back to life. The less air there is in the vacuum chamber the higher wing speed they need to generate lift. Eventually you get to low enough pressure that the flies cannot lift off the ground! Then I...
