Explosive!: Molten Salt Poured Into An Aquarium

March 9, 2016


This is a short video of crazy experimenter The Backyard Scientist (I do all my science in the garage away from prying drone cameras) pouring molten salt into a water filled aquarium. I did not know molten salt was even a thing, but apparently it becomes a thing when salt is heated between 500 and 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit. I learned a lot by watching the video. Mostly that if you want your fish to survive, keep molten salt away from their aquarium. Stick to fish food flakes.

Keep going for a short video of just the explosion, as well as a longer video of the whole setup and a lot of talking and stuff that I'd be lying if I told you I watched in it's entirety it could have nudie scenes spliced in the middle for all I know.

Thanks to PT, who's saving up for one of those plastic aquarium pirates that drinks out of a rum jug. Now see that belongs in an aquarium. Molten salt not so much.

  • All those explosions and the police didn't show up?!

    If they did he'd just put on a white lab coat and they'd leave him alone, since lab coats make anything look legit.

  • God, I do love my lab coat...

  • TheQiwiMan

    I'm glad, my Son, but you may call me TheQiwiMan.

  • Well, if ye insist... (It's gonna make services far more cumbersome and less lyrical, though...)

  • Deksam

    Long sleeve leather jacket and pants would have been smart for these type of experiments. He got lucky with not getting burned.

    He was very lucky he didn't become glass fodder.
