Did someone say turn up the heat? How about with the flames from Oxy-dicyanoacetylene, which burns at an astonishing 4,990 °C (9,000 °F). In comparison, your average candle checks in at a cool 1,000 °C (1,800 °F).
For generations, the flame has long stood as a symbol of both substantial inspiration, destruction and remembrance. It’s been said to date back to 470 million years ago with the first fossil records of fire.
Back in 324 BC you could find Alexander The Great extinguishing one the three “Great Flames”. It was a tribute of honor in respect to the loss of his close friend Haphaestion.
Today, you can find the eternal flame shining brightly as a symbol of the Olympic Games; though, it’s eventually put out every four years.
However, what is the flame exactly? It’s visible for one, not to mention made up of mostly carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrogen and of course, oxygen. Though, what’s interesting is what happens those gases get ionized with extremely hot temperatures. The result is a production of plasma, plus a notable difference in the color of the flame and fires intensity.
