This Is Bunsen Burner Day!
Here is the man, we can all thank for this wonderful invention. German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen was born on March 31, 1811.
I'll bet most of us haven't touched one of these since chemistry class, in high school. The burner is used in a wide range of scientific and laboratory projects.
You can even melt ice with one.
