|Hmm...an ice chest wouldn't do the trick?|
A chap from New Zealand used his 1970 MGB-GT engine and with a little physics know-how, transformed it into a jet engine to, as he said, “burn up fuel very very quickly”.
A jet engine in its simplest form consists of a combuster where fuel is burnt to heat air, a turbine extracting energy from the heated air and a compressor which is turned by the turbine to provide air to the combuster. Using an LPG (liquid petroleum gas) tank to supercool a basin of water, he then dumps in the beer into the basin and turns on his contraption. 5 minutes, 100000 RPM and a racket of 125 dBA later, his beer is chilled to a good 2 degrees Celsius (36 degrees Fahrenheit) .
Now, if only we could as easily cool our cars that way…
