Only Oxygen and Acetylene explode like that. With added hydrogen, it would float and still explode nicely.

While not scientifically conclusive, I believe the observed data supports Hydrogen over oxygen-acetylene.

You will notice that the balloon is lighter than air (it floats rather handily). Generally speaking, an oxy-acetylene mix is not lighter than air.

By definition, any gas is lighter than air that has a Molecular Mass less than 28.97. While Acetylene (C2H2) is, technically, lighter than air with a Molecular Mass of 26, it only BARELY lighter. Adding O2 (Molecular Mass 32) would only add mass. I doubt pure Acetylene would be able to life the mylar (biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate ) envelope. An oxy-acetylene mix would be even more unlikely to.

Hydrogen (H2) is lighter even than Helium (He) and would be more than capable of lifting the mylar, even with O2 added.

Bill Nye the Science Guy.... bill bill bill bill.... geez haha. It has the explosive force of oxy-acetylene bombs my friends dad used to make and they floated. Maybe you're right. Either way, definitely not helium, we can agree on that.

Actullay, hate to "burst your bubble", I believe that is an oxygen-acetylene bomb.
