YouTube channels never fail to amuse people. They always find new and interesting things to incinerate items—for science, of course.
In the spirit of Halloween we now have combustible pumpkins all for the glory of science.
As a Halloween tribute, the Royal Institution channel conducted an experiment with pumpkins and a thermite reaction. This resulted in a large magnitude of heat, sparks, and molten substance ejecting out of the pumpkin.
It is undeniably educational, but of course the highlight is watching Halloween pumpkins ignite into flames and explode in a shower of sparks.
