Take the burning hot that is molten aluminum and mix it with the very cold that is liquid nitrogen and dry ice and you get an awesome as hell experiment that breaks science. Or something like that. Whatever it is, it’s very, very cool because you get to see the extreme reaction create giant bubbles in the aluminum while bits of aluminum pop away too.
