Don't listen to these idiots.. this has nothing to do with nuclear fusion. the surface of the sun is only 10,000 oF. the core, where nuclear fusion takes place is 25 million degrees. Nuclear fusion is hydrogen converting into helium under immense pressure and heat, none of those are present here. Fun fact, lightning is around 50,000 degrees.

Nuclear fusion is how the sun produces energy and light. That shrimp can create a mini-sun that lasts for a millisecond.

Such.. stupid people..

1. The IMPLOSION of the bubble happens so fast it creates a nuclear fusion instantaneously, meaning that for a brief (very brief) second it goes away. Also, the temperature is of that VERY small space, jsut because something is extremely hot, doesn't mean it has a lot of energy.

If I were to place an object.. that is burning at 700 or so degrees (not sure how hot it really gets but im going to use this) on top of a block of ice, or near enough to the ice where it gets the full effect of the heat, what will happen. The object would be cooled down and lose all its energy to the ice. Why?

The burning object was just a match, and the ice object was a 30lb ice sculpture. The ice sculpture (because of its size and mass) has far more energy then that lowly match, even if its only 20 degrees farenheit.

The same thing happens in this case, it MAYBE 9900 degrees, but the area is so small (microscopic) that the energy is lost in a split second when it expanded
