Balloon in a Candle Flame!

In this experiment, you'll learn how to insert a balloon directly into a candle flame without the balloon bursting!

Summary of this Experiment:  An ordinary balloon if inserted into a candle flame will burst immediately because the heat of the candle will melt the rubber and cause the balloon to pop.  

Here you'll learn how to make a simple modification to the balloon that will allow you to place it in direct contact with the flame and the inflated balloon will not burst.  In the process, you'll learn about heat conduction and how we can use the properties of heat transfer to prevent the balloon from bursting.
