    Link: Railroad Tanker Implosion - This is what happens when you forget to use your air venting system. That`s some powerful pressure differential.

    That was pretty cool, btw did anyone else think of that Tom Cruise Scientology video when you heard the Mission Impossible theme in the background? I half expected him to pop up after the tanker imploded and say `Only a scientologist can do that!"

    See kids? Science can be fun!

    Unfortunately there`s not many career prospects in tanker-imploding, but the output characteristics of bipolar junction transistors can be equally rewarding!

    1. How on earth does a tanker with thick plating implode so easily and 2. It would of been much cooler if it was an explosion

    Nice show. Wish I was there. Would be funny if they could do it from inside out too. Make the tank get all fat. lol
    No explosions, of course.

    Here`s what they say in the video (it`s in German): "760. And the winner is "
    So they probably guessed how much pressure the tanker could withstand before collapsing.
