This was one of the best videos ever. I love meningless chemistry that ends with explosions.

Where can I buy some? :D

This one was great :D

Cecium, THE Emperor!
Dantalion  -  May 14, 2006, 14:08
Does anyone know a link to a vid that shows a demonatration of the next alkali mentioned (Frankium)?
Rex  -  May 14, 2006, 19:53
BANG! (that's what it sounded like)
Sitnalta (guest)  -  May 15, 2006, 07:49
If Cesium is the Emporer then wouldn't that make Francium the God of alkali metals? "Brainiac", eh? I'll have to find a torrent.
Dantalion  -  May 15, 2006, 08:31
Brainiac is a program on Discovery Channel. copy+paste this link if youre too lazy to look it up:

Cool as hell
miko (guest)  -  May 15, 2006, 16:22
yay, an up to date version of the 'Experiment' experiments, where they actually did a tiny amount of Francium..I was so geeked out by that sequence I still remember the alkali metals some 20 years later, and have been barred from stockipiling Caesium by my wife. Yes.

LOL i love watching things blow up!!!
hijakk (guest)  -  May 17, 2006, 05:01
Dantalion, Francium is extremely rare, with a very short half life. Calulations are that there are only naturally about 2.5 grams of it anywhere in or on the planet at any given time.
camiloperez  -  May 18, 2006, 02:23
it makes learning fun we should do that in skool sometimes
chem dude (guest)  -  May 19, 2006, 19:57
If you placed the Cesium in a rubber ducky, now that would be funny!
:) (guest)  -  May 20, 2006, 09:34
jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)

they rock! i like myth busters and the braniack!!!

bob (guest)  -  May 20, 2006, 12:00
francium is radioactive so it wouldnt have exploded in the same way. caesium is the most fun to watch
JEBENOOO (guest)  -  May 26, 2006, 16:54
fkin bombastic :)
Boffin (guest)  -  May 28, 2006, 19:10
Francium anly exists naturally as aroung 2 g in the world at any one time. This however quickly degrades into a diferent atom. the experiment would be theoretically impossible. it only exists for millionths of a second in laboratory tests
eXPertz (guest)  -  May 29, 2006, 19:52
boffin thats why it was sealed in a not carbon based atmosphere n00b... how does it feel to be the biggest IDIOT here?
Dezyples (guest)  -  June 19, 2006, 08:52
you do know that sealing a radioactive atom in a not carbon based atmosphere doesnt prevent it from degrading? it would degrade even in vakuum
omegarugal74 (guest)  -  June 21, 2006, 17:02
very most impressive!!but..true!!??
Daniel (guest)  -  June 23, 2006, 03:23
Is that really Caesium, isnt that highly radioactive and poisonus? Can they really get permission to spread it like that? ..strange..
Coolgerb (guest)  -  June 23, 2006, 12:22
"But for some odd reason, they wouldn't let us have that..." English humor ftw xD
alan (guest)  -  June 28, 2006, 17:21
loved it!!

i want some lol to put in my mates bath when hes in it listening to music LOL BOOM bye bye leo!

For those wanting a video like this of francium dont expect it. Francium occurs as a result of an alpha disintegration of actinium. It can also be made by artificially by bombarding thorium with protons. Only problem is there is probably less than 1 ounce of Francium in the earths crust at any given time.

Chemistry rules!

Sehr guten site. Alles arbeitet deutlich(klar), schon eben storungsfrei. Wer machte? Vielleicht vom Weg?
babyyy (guest)  -  September 24, 2006, 13:53
this is not francium its rubidium sodium and potasium i want to see francium!!!

Daniel (guest) Is that really Caesium, isnt that highly radioactive and poisonus? Can they really get permission to spread it like that? ..strange.. Cesium breaks down in water and it's no longer that dangerous. Boffin is right though i'm not sure if completely. Under certain conditions it may be kept in a diferent stage, mixed with something. Then putining it in water it would get produce francium, with wich it would imediatly react and make a very impressive explosion. (i believe it would be ~2-3 times biger then cesium at least)

i wanted to see francium : (

Im deleting the comments regularly, some spam network has decided that this video needs lots of crap in the comments :( I should add a CAPTCHA (those distorted letters you have to fill in)

Hello world
milf stacey (guest)  -  December 18, 2006, 18:33
Google Stillstand? Seit gut einer Woche taucht kein einziger Artikel, den wir schreiben, in den Index aufgenommen. Hat jemand ahnliche Erfahrungen? Normalerweise dauert das nur 1-2 Tage bis Google die Artikel im Index auffuhrt. Gehts es anderen auch so? E'intesa sulle coppie di fatto. Il disegno di legge sarĂ  pronto entro il 31 gennaio. Il provvedimento riguarderĂ  anche le coppie gay. Siete favorevoli? I haven't gotten much done recently. I don't care. My life's been basically boring these days. Whatever. More or less nothing exciting going on lately, but pfft.

Remember: Never mix alkali metals with Walter (Poor guy, always getting mixed up with those alkys)
sciencer (guest)  -  January 12, 2007, 15:49
Francium is the most reactive wiked cool we saw a video where some guys threw some in a bath blew 12ft hole in the ground the expance of hydrogen gas was emmence
not a great idea (guest)  -  February 16, 2007, 22:06
terrorists can use this. Not very smart
Henk (guest)  -  March 13, 2007, 22:58
Yeah :D, just soooo god :D
H & R (guest)  -  March 14, 2007, 08:38
Great :D, where can you see Francium?? :D
hobo (guest)  -  April 8, 2007, 23:19
this is fake, it's really just his semen
Whiteleaf (guest)  -  April 10, 2007, 18:41
Francium can't be made in amounts that can be seen by a human eye
Geo  -  June 12, 2007, 21:36
Seriously, francium is too reactive to ever use. It reacts with just about anything, even itself. You'd have to lock it in a vacuum, and then make sure it doesn't touch the sides to store even a couple of miligrams. Somehow. I'm probably wrong though :P.
some guy (guest)  -  September 23, 2007, 17:47
yes terrorists are not idiots, blowing yourself up is genius[/sarcasm]
memome (guest)  -  November 7, 2007, 04:35
where is the damn francium
ItsMeFewls (guest)  -  November 26, 2007, 17:02
Francium is extremely unstable and after searching for why for the last 10 mins i have gathered that there is only about 2.5 grams of it in the earths crust at one time and these degrade into other atoms very very quickly.Therefore there is never enough time to get it back to a lab and perform and video it.Thanks.Btw you've just wasted like 5 seconds of your life lol ^^
sunil (guest)  -  May 8, 2008, 15:39
i sed yes but he sed no but i dont no coz i got flow theres the popo

All vote 4 the canadian president
answeing some person that asked about francium (guest)  -  May 27, 2008, 00:48
its called francium and you cant get that legally because it would be like a huge reaction because it is extremely radioactive and it is the least found element after astatine
contradicting 'sciencer' (guest)  -  May 27, 2008, 00:52
what you said is not true because you cant get enougn francium to stay as francium to make a reaction with water because it is extremely unstable let alone have time to make a video out of it. im not gonna say your lying or anything just that probably what you saw was some other alkali metal not FRANCIUM
RB (guest)  -  June 22, 2008, 18:51
...great teach the fucking terrorists more ways to kill us...
John (guest)  -  April 4, 2011, 07:40
Well, this is fun and all but I just got done watching the Mythbusters episode proving this video was a hoax...what a stupid thing to lie about on the internet.
adi (guest)  -  October 24, 2011, 16:02
nice but how do we download it
