Ingenious Divers Crack An Egg Underwater, Prove Science Is Oh-So-Very Cool

Posted: Updated:

From blowing water rings to the infamous pull-my-finger gag, SCUBA divers are always finding inventive ways to have fun underwater.

But this trick warms our nerdy hearts.

The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) produced the above video to show just how strong a force pressure is underwater. BIOS Dive Safety Officer Alex Hunter and filmmaker Dean Lee crack an egg 60 feet below water. The surrounding water assumes the role of the eggshell itself, exerting enough inward pressure to keep the yolk and egg white in tact -- and allowing Hunter to play with it like a celestial yellow orb.

“When you break an egg in a glass of water, the yolk spreads everywhere," Hunter explains. "When you are down in the ocean, the pressure holds it together. It is fascinating.”

And trippy.

Just don't let your magical orb float around too long, or you might seriously disrupt the food chain:
