          They shoulda bound the block so it cracked but held and made a cool object. But I'm glad the guys had fun:)

                Preheat your crucibles, for Pete's sake. It makes melting down your metal that much easier.

                            Too bad, you did not also use an ultra slow-motion camera, Please don't get me wrong what you did was really cool and it was great to see and hear that place you all choice was really super for sound effect just added to the coolness of this happening but, perfection is what I'm of you all.

                                        Who here knew immediately that it would explode? The molten aluminum would instantly cause the water to boil, creating an overpressure in the void below the molten mass and BOOM, off it will go.

There no reason aluminum itself would explode under these conditions. The ICE - WATER - STEAM quickly heated to a very high temperature created a change in PRESSURE. And the high steam pressure caused the explosion. Think it through guys.

                                                                                            Here is something you can try...

                                                                                            The reaction is that the very hot moltern sodium hits the water and explodes chemically which creates enormous amounts of heat, and it explodes thermally, so the "big pour" detonates and all the pour explodes and creates more fragments of molten sodium - which detonates chemically and and thermally - and this reaction is repeated endlessly until the sodium is minute particals - with an enormous amount of surface area, and an enormous amount of sodium to water detonation, and thermal explosion as super heated steam....
                                                                                            Basically it was something like a huge tank of water, that I think was replicating the conditions inside the heat exchanger (very hot water like 400*C at 200 PSI) and the observation window as something like 4" thick, and I think something like 20 litres of molten sodium was injected into the water - like a small hole had formed in the sodium pipe and the explosion was so severe, it destroyed the laboratory. I saw the experiment on film once or twice and it appears to have vanished as a part of history - in a documentary and or over time, or it has been made to vanish. This is THE video to get in terms of molten metals and water explosions....... Been searching for it for years, I have never been able to find it again..... I saw the film 30 or 40 years ago....
