Does it attract? Or repel? Maybe it create cool shapes. But most importantly... DOES IT EXPLODE?! I set off thermite over a very large and expensive magnet to finally find out for myself what happens when molten metal meets a magnet. I learned that molten iron is not responsive to a magnetic field until it falls below 1400 fahrenheit, the curie temperature. By then it's solid!
