We’ve seen experiments on YouTube where different kinds of metal and other items are melted and poured into gallons of water. But what would happen if you poured molten salt in water? Some would think it’ll just turn into salt water right? No. Apparently, the reaction creates a massive explosion—strong enough to shatter a large fish tank into small pieces!
YouTube’s TheBackyardScientist once again creates a truly mesmerizing video, as he slows the explosion down to 5,000 frames per second—the results are simply wonderful! But before trying this experiment at home, be sure to wear safety gear. Who knew pouring molten salt in water would be so dangerous?
