I bet you’ve always wanted to know what happens when you crack an egg 30 metres (105ft) under?

Well brace yourself because you’re about to find out, and the result just might crack your expectations (terrible pun intended).

As you can see in the video below, at 30 metres a cracked egg generally holds its shape until it floats away… unless you’re me ofcourse who somehow managed to squeeze mine while cracking it *sigh* – I’m much better with eggs in the kitchen!

The egg holds its shape due to the pressure that comes from being 30 metres underwater which is three times the amount we experience normally. Because of this denser pressure than above the surface the egg is forced to hold its shape.

This is a fun little activity that we did while completing our Advanced course in the Honduras, we also had a drink under water which you can see at the end of the video.
