Judging from the proper equipment he is using for the melting process, and the neat looking setup and all, one would think he would know what he was doing... :P But hey, we all learn somehow ;)

Well, he didn't expect that.
Nor do I even with hindsight.
Why did it explode?
I mean, what contained the pressure?
Anyone any ideas?

#7 Good explanation, I was curious as well.

"For those of you wondering why it exploded. When water evaporates it expands. 1 litre of water/ice will turn into 1600 litres of vapor. The molten metal is so hot and transferred energy so quickly, it instantly evaporated, and since there was physical obstructions in all directions it excerted its force in all directions. this is why water is generally kept away from furnaces. However, if you put ice or water on top of something this hot it's much safer, as the vapour will have free space to expand."
