Backyard scientist is back with a new video of molten aluminum.
This time, he deconstructs exactly how he melts the aluminum, and shows you the beginning wire before it is melted down into liquid form.
Then, he gears up to pour the liquid into a pool.
What happens next?
The aluminum doesn’t explode. Instead, it falls down onto the bottom of the pool, making a really interesting shape.
“In this video I pour over 5 POUNDS of red-hot molten aluminum metal into a pool. The metal makes a crazy noise and remains molten all the way to the bottom of a 6 foot deep pool,” he writes on YouTube.
He also films the action from underwater to give you a view of what’s happening.
