WATCH: What Happens When You Fill a Lava Lamp with Molten Aluminum?

So what happens if you fill a lava lamp with molten aluminum? That’s what one daring man wanted to find out. Curious about the potential outcome, he set up this super cool experiment and filmed the explosive results.

Using aluminum melted at to an astounding 1,221°F, this scientifically-minded man pours it directly into a giant lava lamp. The reaction is just like a volcano—messy but exciting to see.

The most surprising part? The cool shape the aluminum forms into after cooling off!

We’ve seen people attempt to cook with lava, and we’ve seen artists pour aluminum into an anthill to create breath-taking sculptures here.

This just makes us ask, what else could you pour aluminum into?
