This is What Happens When You Pour Molten Aluminum into a Watermelon

I don’t know who first thought of pouring molten aluminum inside everyday objects just to see what crazy things it does, but it sure makes for some interesting entertainment. The Backyard Scientist decided to try this experiment with a watermelon. He and his assistant created a hollow core inside the guts of a watermelon with the intention of, apparently, blowing it up.

The theory was that once the superheated metal came into contact with the cool water in the melon, an explosion would occur, and they’d end up with watermelon chunks, but that’s not what happened.
