Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
Gave a tour for five hours from 11-4 and went to Relay For Life and walked a total of 50 laps (~5 miles according to my app… thing). If you have never been to Relay For Life, I encourage you to go to it at least once. It’s so touching! More info about it here: http://www.relayforlife.org/
This older gentleman, we were all cheering him on because he’d been walking for at least 20 hours non-stop! You would think “how is that possible?” But he did it. Over 300 laps! While most of us took breaks, ate, napped, he kept going. I did not recall him taking a break to sit or nap! So amazing
