cork explosion

From Decanter.

“A German scientist has managed to register the speed of a Champagne cork as it leaves the bottle.

Friedrich Balck of Clausthal Technical University in northwest Germany found that a vigorously shaken bottle of Champagne, with a pressure of 2.5 bars, expelled its cork at 40 kilometres per hour (km/h) – 24.8 miles per hour.”

Here’s the university’s website. link
