World’s Largest Baking-Soda-and-Vinegar Volcano

Oregon’s Museum of Science set out to break the world record for “largest baking soda and vinegar volcano, with a crowd that was estimated, 3,000 watching, a reddish liquid sprayed from the top of the tarp-covered structure. Though it will take months to confirm it, Sonali Shivdasani is “100 percent confident” that the volcano indeed set a new world record.

The previous record for a vinegar-baking soda volcano was 28 feet tall with a 4-foot eruption, set by the Elmfield Rudolf Steiner School in the United Kingdom in 2015. Oregon’s baking soda-vinegar volcano appears to have beaten the previous record handily, with a freestanding structure that reached 34 feet and an eruption that hit around 6-8 feet beyond that. We won’t  know for sure that they have set the Guinness World Record for at least 2-3 months.

A Museum employee recorded the eruption from the museum’s rooftop so Guinness would be able to confirm how high the eruption went.
