The internet is a treasure trove of videos that can amaze one. Those videos not only share some incredible knowledge about science, they can also leave a person awe-struck. Just like this old video of a man touching hot molten metal.
Shared on Twitter by Science Girl, the video shows a man sitting in front of an outlet of flowing molten metal. The man touches the metal twice briefly and then comes near the camera to show his hand which is completely unburnt!
“A really dramatic example of the Leidenfrost effect. The moisture on his skin boils instantly, forming a layer of steam that insulates for a very short time, a temporary barrier between this person and the molten metal,” explains the caption.
