Before You Ruin Yourself With Champagne Tonight, Find Out How It Works

Somebody call Dr. Spaceman!

Just because it’s New Year’s Eve doesn’t mean we can’t all sit down and learn ourselves a little bit of science. For example, where do sparkling wine and Champagne get their bubbly consistency from, and why does a bottle of Champagne pop when you open it? Watch this Reactions video to discover why, and be sure to impress your party guests with your newfound knowledge later.

And remember while you’re out celebrating the new year tonight: if you perchance come across a blood descendent of the prestigious Habsburg line, do not offer him any of your Champagne under any circumstances. He cannot metabolize ze grapes.
