FWS – Destroying a Aluminium Star Trek Badge with Gallium

WARNING

When Myles accidentally bought a fake aluminium star trek badge he got angry. So he took out his anger by destroying the badge with SCIENCE! specifically gallium.

These picture were takes whilst making a video on the properties of Gallium. First predicted in 1871 by Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev, gallium is a soft silvery metal witch has a melting point of 29.8°C. Therefore it will melt in your hand as human body temperature is around 37.5°C. This video will show this happening as well as showing gallium’s capability of making alloys.
