I packed a fish tank completely full of water balls (water beads, water balz, orbeez, spitballs...). I'm guessing there are over 10,000 in there! Anyway, I melted a bunch of aluminum pipes, and once it became red hot, it was time to dump it in the fish tank.

In the fish tank, the molten aluminum cooled down in an instant and made such a cool design, just as predicted. No two were alike! Check out all the different designs that were made in the video!

Vat 19 was nice enough to supply me with the spitballs to use in this video :) https://www.vat19.com/item/spitballs-50-g-pack

Science is a cool subject to explore, but some of the experiments just aren't safe to do at your own home. That is why the Internet is filled with videos of both professionals and enthusiasts pushing the boundaries of safety as they demonstrate various science experiments, so you don't have to!

Cue Kevin Kohler a.k.a. TheBackyardScientist! What would we do if it weren't for him? The guy has shown us how magnesium burns and whether you can put it out, he has even got on the fidget spinner craze train and showed us what a rocket powered fidget spinner looks like. These experiments of his were quite dangerous, so it is better to just open TheBackyardScientist channel here on https://rumble.com and watch them from the safety of your own couch.
