    The flame of the match is an ionised gas that electrons have separated from their atoms and the free electrons react with the microwaves

    Radiation?! Lol microwaves don’t give off any type of harmful radiation, other than heat “radiating” it’s not like they are nuclear or anything. You don’t need to “cover” the hole to protect yourself

    Get one of those really tiny drones and see how it flies in a vacuum chamber as you gradually take away pressure. Maybe you can even try flying a drone in something other than the air.

    I think the match worked because it's pointy and the alcohol is not, like putting a fork in there goes crazy and a spoon doesn't.

    The molecules in the smoke are excited by the klystron, making the gases from the burning wood ignite, just like a neon light, except a neon light is sealed and has different gases.
