What Happens If You Add Molten Aluminum To Dry Ice and Liquid Nitrogen?

Putting aside your knowledge of ice Pokemon versus fire Pokemon, who do you reckon would come out on top in the chemical cocktail of molten aluminum, dry ice, and liquid nitrogen?

To find out, check out this video by TheBackyardScientist of him pouring some molten aluminum onto dry ice, then dropping some dry ice into molten aluminum, followed by pouring molten aluminum into liquid nitrogen for good measure.

All the reactions are probably not quite what you’d expect. Fortunately, in case you miss any of it, all of them are filmed with the help of a super-slow-motion camera and a rather cool thermal camera you can attach to a smartphone.
