YouTube channel The Backyard Scientist had a strange experiment this week when he poured molten aluminum into a watermelon. The end result is pretty fascinating.
First, who is The Backyard Scientist and what does he do? He is an average guy who likes to do science projects in his backyard. Basically the DIY science project for all you people looking for the next DIY craft. Check out his videos if that seems to tickle your experiment fancy, he enjoys anything involving “chemistry, science experiments, technology, fire, burning things, and melting things.”
In the past 24 hours, this video went viral and jumped to the beginning of the top Reddit videos after 12 hours online. Watch below.
Onto the watermelon and molten aluminum one. All of his viewers thought the watermelon would explode. But what did happen was pretty fricken cool and will totally be a centerpiece on their kitchen table (probably).
