Molten aluminum and watermelon – it’s not exactly a dinner party favorite. For a liquid substance that can reach temperatures of 704–760oC (1300–1400oF) to meet the juicy innards of a watermelon, you’d expect an awesome explosion with bits of watermelon forever fused to aluminum flying out everywhere.

That’s also what YouTube user TheBackyardScientist thought would happen, but prepare to be astounded by his odd science experiment. If you’re curious, TheBackyardScientist describes the smell of the peculiar concoction as “sickly sweet with base-notes of burning hair.”
