 Starting to look like the world's biggest tub of vanilla ice cream.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Looks to be 100 percent frost covered. Venting from the top and bottom. Big question is whether they push it to failure today to see what pressures the new tank can sustain.

Thatís the goal. There a few known weak points on this test tank, probably capable of more pressure. The second test tank to follow shortly has addressed the weak points.

Will this tank be tested to destruction?

 It looks like liquid might have started coming out the top.

 LN2 in the dirt.
 It almost looks back to normal. Maybe they just overfilled it.

    Tank didnít burst, but leaked at 7.6 bar. This is a good result & supports idea of 304L stainless being better than 301. Weíre developing our own alloy to take this even further. Leak before burst is highly desirable.
