Video: What Happens When Molten Lava Meets Ice?

The Science Channel in Youtube posted an interesting video about the result of lava and ice combined. The video has had over 8 million views in the 2 months since its release and has baffled even the film makers about the result.

What happens is a process called Sublimation, where the ice gets so hot that it skips the liquid state and goes straight to gaseous state. The steam creates a pressure stable enough to allow the lava to continue flowing without sinking into the ice block.

Watch the video of the experiment below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
