What Happens When Hot Lava Is Poured On Ice Is Absolutely Insane (Video)

Everyone knows the forces of nature can be both powerful and unpredictable.

But, have you ever wondered what would happen if you brought together Earth's polar opposite materials?

Well, thanks to the guys from Outrageous Acts of Science, we now know. And it looks like "scrambled eggs from Hell."

For their latest experiment, they set out to discover what happens when you pour molten hot lava on a thick sheet of ice.

As the lava bubbles across the ice, it seems as if it is boiling, but these red hot bubbles are actually caused by sublimation.

Nuclear chemist Alistair Linsell told Metro,

The lava is so hot than when it's poured onto the ice, the ice instantly turns not just into water but straight into steam.

Material chemist Sujata Kundu further explained,

This steam has to escape so it bubbles through the lava, so while it looks like the lava itself is boiling, it's actually the steam being produced that is trying to escape.

Check out the video to see what happens when lava is poured over ice.
