Trying to Swim in a 15 Ton JELL-O Swimming Pool

In 2016, former NASA engineer Mark Rober and The Backyard Scientist filled up a backyard swimming pool with 25 million Orbeez water balls. On that same day, Rober decided he was going to fulfill his childhood dream of creating the world’s biggest JELL-O swimming pool. With the help of his brother, Rober accomplished his long-awaited goal and attempted to go for a swim in it.

Since I was a little kid I always wondered what it would be like to swim in a pool of Jello. Turns out it is really difficult. We heated up the Gelatin in 55-gallon drums and then used gravity to put that jello into the pool.
