To float a frog using diamagnetic levitation, a superconducting magnet with the strength of roughly 16 Tesla is needed. This data point was calculated by researchers at the Nijmegen High Field Magnet Laboratory. GIF by David Carpenter. 

Oh General Electric and their magnets:)

You might think that metal isn’t flammable, but if you can get it hot enough & expose it to enough oxygen, it’s easy. Here you can see some steel wool which has been heated to over 700 degrees celcius, using nothing but a battery. How? Find out in this video which shows you what you need to perform this beautiful science experiment at home: http://youtu.be/jCbj6tjCKIo
