Thanks to the Leidenfrost Effect water dropped on an extremely hot surface is capable of floating instead of immediately evaporating. While studying the effect, physicists at the University of Bath realized that not only does the water float, but under the right conditions and temperatures it can actually climb upward. The playful experiments lead to the creation of an incredible superheated maze.

Thanks to Alessandro Narduzzo we could perform this amazing demonstration on the show.
