Crushing a 55 gallon steel drum with steam

Here’s something fun to try …

Fill a saucepan with cold water. Put 15 milliliters (1 tablespoon) of water into an empty soft-drink can. Heat the can on the kitchen stove to boil the water in the can. When the water boils, a cloud of condensed vapor will escape from the opening in the can. Allow the water to boil for about 30 seconds. Then using some tongs, grasp the can and quickly invert it and dip it into the water in the pan. The can will collapse almost instantaneously.
