While many of us are stuck in our homes, we’ve been asking ourselves a lot of questions. How can I stop touching my face? What happens if I start to feel sick? What happens when you fill a watermelon with molten aluminum?
OK, that last one may not be a question anyone else is asking, and we shouldn’t try to find out ourselves. But The Backyard Scientist did the experiment for us. His YouTube channel is a space where he performs strange and potentially dangerous experiments all in the name of science.
As he begins to pour the molten aluminum into a hole he’s created in the watermelon, The Backyard Scientist expects the fruit to explode. What actually happens turn out to be more art than science. Take a look below.
