Detail of the Experiment
Since I don't have time to grow a crystal, I thought it should be easy enough to find a video of the experiment on the internet. So far, I've searched to no avail though. So, here's the challenge... Can anyone provide a video of this experiment? Does anybody have a sodium chlorate crystal lying around they'd like to try this with? If anybody would like to try growing a crystal, I've included the recipe below. To add injury to insult, in Europe, the sale and use of sodium chlorate has been banned and it appears to be somewhat hobbled here in the States where it can only be shipped to businesses and schools.
