It was to be one of the biggest science experiments ever seen yet there was not a bunson burner or test tube in sight.Around 1,500 students kitted out in waterproof ponchos discovered exactly what happens when you drop a mint sweet into a bottle of Coca Cola, in an attempt to break a world record.
Coke

The students, from Belgium, tried to out-fizz the previous record for so-called Mentos fountains by simultaneously putting Mentos mints into bottles of the soft drink.The resultant chemical reaction shot hundreds of streams of carbonated soda into the air.The explosive record-breaking event was held in Ladeuzeplein square in Leuven, Belgium.



Hundreds of Belgians, covered in raingear, attempt to set the world record for... the largest Diet Coke & Mentos explosion in Leuven.
