Scientists film balloon explosion

When a balloon explodes...

A BBC science programme has used a super slow motion camera to film a balloon exploding.

Dr Yan Wong, who's a presenter Bang Goes The Theory, found out what happens when a balloon explodes with a camera capturing 2,700 frames per second.

Bang Goes The Theory is a programme that puts scientific theory to the test and looks at how science shapes the world around us.

You can catch it on Monday evenings on BBC One at 1930.
