David,

Very nice videos indeed. Thank's for sharing. I specially like the
effect of the burning filament in hydrogen. That really is
astonishing. However, I wonder about how big the danger of self
ignition is in this case. Probably zero if you are careful to have
only hydrogen and no air or oxygene inside the cond@om.

Has it ever blown up besides purposely igniting it with the torch?

Great effect to light up that little ''hydrogen bomb''.

Regards

Urs
