In primary education, we conduct numerous experiments geared at explaining the “wonders” of the world. Not far off from a simple science experiment, GE conducted an experiment with a balloon and the chemicals make up of the sun. Aesthetically breathtaking to say the least, the video captures the force and power of the star in a way that feels humanly palpable and takes science from explanation back into the realm of magical thinking.

Given GE and many other energy companies’ shift to developing clean energy, it’s important that educating the public about these energies in a more relatable way continue if we are ever to make headway in their adoption.
