Jaclyn calls me our resident "Bill Nye, the Science Guy." And that's because I've been trying little experiments around the station, like putting Ivory soap in the microwave oven, for example.

Well, I found another one I wanted to try, and since I have seldom ever seen a real lava lamp that actually worked properly, I thought I'd make one myself. Vegetable oil, food coloring, and any effervescent tablet is where you begin.

Have fun!
