A proposal to set CH4*5.75H20 on fire (work in process) is an ongoing project that explores methane hydrate, an ice compound that has been identified by scientists as an alternative for of future energy. Found in large quantities beneath Arctic permafrost, Antarctic ice and sedimentary deposits, methane hydrate releases natural gas when exposed to increase in temperature or decreases in pressure.These photographs film shows samples of methane hydrates. Gas released by methane hydrates can be lit, which produces a semi-transparent orange and blue flame.
