On February, 29, 2012, Leap Day, Steve Spangler made his 13th appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. As always, he brought some of his favorite, explosive and nail biting experiments. Ellen, who never wants to know what Steve is doing before the show, refused to stand in front of a swinging bowling ball. (We can’t imagine why.) The swinging bowling ball demonstrated potential and kinetic energy. Lauren, Ellen’s staff writer, stood in front of the swinging ball and hoped it didn’t come back and hit her in the face. Next, Steve showed Ellen the fast and easy way to crush soda cans and a 5 gallon drum.

We are all excited to see Steve Spangler make his 13th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. He will be a guest on the Wednesday, February 29th Leap Day show.
Steve has been working tirelessly the past few weeks to put together some fun and explosive demonstrations to do with Ellen. We can’t tell you what he has planned, but promise it will bring out a lot of oohs and ahhs from the audience and Ellen herself. In past appearances, he has made giant Elephant’s Toothpaste, blown hundreds of ping pong balls across the stage, walked across a pool of corn starch, laid Ellen across a bed of nails and shot smoke rings across the studio. You can watch all of Steve’s appearances on SteveSpanglerScience.com.
What will he do this time? Check your local listings and tune in Wednesday to find out.
