TheBackyardScientist is returned, bringing back with a super-high-speed camera and a fish tank as well as some molten salt.

It is known that salt (sodium chloride, in technical term) would turn into a molten liquid once it could be to over 801 degrees celsius (1,474 degrees fahrenheit). Therefore, when you drop a small shot of that liquid into a tank of cool water, you would observe a amazingly powerful physical reaction.

If you are interested in such reaction, you could go watch the explosive results below. Additionally, you could also view the full video, presented by TheBackyardScientist with its own explanation of the process of this happening.
