Thermite is pretty bad stuff. It burns at 5000 degrees and can melt pretty much anything. So what happens if you put a whole bunch of thermite into a washing machine and turn it on?
Youtuber and teamed up to find out. They stuffed 30 pounds of thermite in a modified washing machine, lit it, set the machine to spin... and ran.
Check it out:
Thermite is way too hot for the washing machine to handle. The fire burned so hot it actually melted the electronics almost immediately, causing the washing machine to shut down. Still, the giant fire that resulted was pretty awesome.
At the end they used a firework to explode the washing machine. Looks like they learned a lesson from Mythbusters: if at first you don't succeed, blow something up.
