Solving Minecraft's HOTTEST Mystery! | The SCIENCE of... Minecraft
SUBSCRIBE to NEVER miss a Theory! ►

The Minecraft furnace. So basic that most of us probably never give it a second thought after we craft our first one. Well, Austin is NOT that guy. The Minecraft furnace can craft a plethora of items... but should that be possible? Now I'm not talking about the recipes for the items, but the heat it takes to melt them down. Today Austin is going to find out if the furnace is up to snuff or if the science will burn it to the ground!

    Would the flux also lower the stone in the furness melting temp?

    Anyone else come here for more lore on the ancient builders than got a science class but stayed the whole time anyway?

  • Moosky

    Couldn't adding flux to the materials you want to melt in your stone furnace cause the stone's melting point to lower as well?

    Hey I had a thought…what if Steve isn’t the ancestor of the ancient builders..? What if he was their last experiment of life before they went to the end? Bc of the fact that he is the only being in the world that can respawn

    Biggest Takeaway: Glass should be on the usual list of things people discovered by accident like chocolate chip cookies and velcro.

    now, i mean if this could be the right series, id like an explanation as to if a dragon could feasibly fly, regardless of wing size or no wings at all. perhaps an explanation as to a scientific way a dragon could breathe fire. i have my ideas involving gas sacs and stuff but id like someone to actually do scientific research on this. anyone willing to explain this to me, ill be ecstatic. even better if Austin himself would. these odds are slim to none, but i mean you never know. ill just have to wait. ill be waiting for any explanations!

    I like how you slipped a red vs blue joke in the video

  • Wheatley5555

    Theory: The ancient Builders who entered the End Dimension built the dragon out of Redstone to keep the zombie virus/players/apocalypse at bay... It's why the dragon is immune to the wither effect and can't be spectated, and also why it's at the spawning platform of the end. The builders would have used replicas of the dragons head on the end cities to warn others of their power/might and it's why they are powered by Redstone too. Please do a theory on this it would be cool...

    With minecraft you legit make a pile of rocks, stick a log or two inside, put whatever you'd like to cook, and boom, no heat even needed.

    If you think about it a lot of stuff in minecraft literally disobey the law of science in so many ways, there’s so much that I can’t even count. Can you possibly do another video like this but on a different item/s that doesn’t follow the law of science, like how the hell does floating island work or many other cool minerals?

    Hey I just thought of an interesting topic Gambits powers in X-Men I think might be under rated if he turns all the potential energy of an object into kinetic wouldn't that make like for example a block of wood more explosive then gunpowder since he's essentially making them release their energy rapidly as opposed to over time so ideally small things with high potential energy could be more explosive then some actual explosives and what would get him the most bang for his buck
