Great idea! I love "what if" people. I'm amazed the dry ice help up and didn't melt through.

Question: could you re-light the shards or is that just melted aluminum?

looks like it's just melted aluminum mixed with the molten iron that was made.

Ahh the Leidenfrost effect at work. Didn't expect it, but makes perfect sense.

Also the reason you should not use ice cold water to cool your hands when burned. Lukewarm/cold water removes the heat much faster. (But in a more extreme setting)

I admit it.... I was curious how a TERMITE would react with dry ice. :(|)
