Amazing Video Shows Molten Metals Poured Into Water

The Backyard Scientist has produced dozens of videos on YouTube showing some fun experiments usually involving explosions or fire. In one of his most recent shows, he pours 7 different molten metals into a fish tank full of water. No fish were harmed in the making of this video. Molten pewter, tin, bismuth, lead, zinc, aluminium, and thermite all have different reactions to the water.

What do you think will happen to the molten metal? Maybe the water will come shooting out due to the high temperatures, maybe an exciting reaction in the water. Check out the video now and have all of your questions answered!
