It’s a gas!

Guinness for strength

Nitrogen is used in Guinness to make a smoother drink because the bubbles are smaller than carbon dioxide. It is also used in aeroplane tyres because it can withstand the pressure of contact with the ground where other gases would make the tyres burst. Pretty cool stuff to do with the most abundant gas in the atmosphere!
