    Link: I Get That Water Freezes... - But how in the heck does it freeze like this in mid-air? Would a freezer really get cold enough to make this happen?

    For one that`s not water...

    Ever hear of the instant freeze beer trick? I think this happened for the same reason that does.

    it freezes rapidly as pressure releases, thermal change due to pressure, it was at a freezing tempature but due to pressure it didnt freeze, when the pressure overcame the strength of the cap, it released and froze instanltly

    basic science. Same as when a scientist taps a coke bottle and it instantly freezes.

    In Japan, this would end up as some type of porn.

    This happened with a can of Diet Pepsi in my car once. The can exploded and the soda froze in mid-air. I had Pepsi snow all over the back seat.

    It didn`t freeze instantly. The snake was formed slowly at the neck of the bottle as foamy liquid was force out of the neck and frozen repeatedly. Things can burst and freeze instantly, but the burst actually creates drops, not a continuous snake of liquid. "Let`s check the high speed".

    Tedgp- I`m sure you know what you`re talking about, but your wording makes it sounds like scientists have magic powers.

    ask the christian how this happens, they say god did it. ask any physicist, they`ll break out a text book and explain.

    That`s not a freezer, it`s a small fridge. The freezer area in the top right has ice in it... but it`s in a position where if the door was closed, the cap and arc would hit it. It is definitely possible... but I think this one`s a fake.

    Oh it happens, when you have a mini fridge and there`s no real distinction between the `freezer` area and fridge, it`s neg 20 outside and your dorm heater doesn`t work, the whole thing turns into a freezer.

    This happens because the water expands faster than the outside can cool to freezing. generally because of an impurity it creates a tunnel with the frozen non-expanding layer outside and the less frozen still expanding layer inside. There is less force against the expansion at the top or center of the tunnel and thus water is pushed from the expansion up the tunnel freezing faster on the sides. this continues and creates inverted icicles or this.

    The bottle could have been turned 90° while this happened inside the fridge and been put like this after dicovering it. So doubt about the fakeness. Imo this is possible because the gas inside the water causes kinda istant freezin (seen it once myself)

    I`ve seen something like this before, it`s foam that expands out and hardens as it goes. Slow process.

    Fake. Even if the super-cooled water was at -18 degrees Celsius (typical home freezer) the latent heat released by freezing would allow at most 1/4 to freeze.

    it slowly pushed the top up as the liquid gradually froze.
