VIA| We’ve seen some pretty amazing science experiments before, but the most surprising ones have always somehow involved hot spheres of nickel. This metal conducts heat particularly well, is able to be shaped into pretty much anything, and is a lot cheaper to use than others.
When this person conducted a confounding science experiment, they brought out a fiery nickel ball to help kickstart their trick. Watch what this spherical heat source can do to a large piece of garden foam.
I wasn’t expecting that to happen. It looked like it turned several beautiful colors before it all finally went black. I wonder how they even discovered this.
