He Heated Salt Until It Was A Liquid…Then, He Conducted An Awesome Experiment

The Backyard Scientist is a YouTube creator with an awesome mission in mind…

blowing things up!

(Technically, his YouTube bio claims that he “[likes] to make videos on all the crazy stuff I do. From exploding arrows, to making instruments, molten aluminum to science/chemistry experiments – I do it so you don’t have to.”)

Although he does more than cause small explosions using molten material, it’s some of his best work. In this experiment, he melts table salt in a makeshift furnace.

Then, he pours the molten sodium chloride into some fruit (with awesome results).

Ah, the majesty of science.

Ah, the majesty of science.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

It doesn't get any better than this.

This kind of experiment is actually dangerous, so leave the molten substances to the experts and just bask in the glow of their explosions.
