More experiments with rubber bands
The rubber in rubber bands is bound together by thousands of long chains of molecules that are coiled together something like a net. When you pull a rubber band the molecules uncoil and align themselves closer together as they straighten out.
When you release the rubber band the molecules that have been straightened recoil back into their original position. The molecules returning to their original position causes the rubber band to fly through the air.
