What Happens When Molten Lava Meets A Can Of Coke

 

Freshly erupted lava can range from 700-1200 °C (1,300-2,200 °F). According to the manufacturers, Coca-Cola is best served at 4 °C (40 °F).

Photographer Bryan Lowry wondered (as so many of us do): “What would happen if a can of Coke crossed paths with molten lava?” He decided to stage an experiment on a volcano in Hawaii. One can had a small hole punctured in the top too prevent the aluminum can from exploding. The second can was left perfectly sealed. Lowry used a GoPro to capture the video and was not in any personal danger.

How do you think the cans will fare against the lava?
