What happens when you put a raw egg into a freezer. Will it crack ? 
Because of the contraction of the egg white and egg yoke thereby 
pulling in the shell ? or will it crack because of the expansion of 
freezing (as in water at 4 degree C ), Or will it crack at all ?

Can u take it out and see through the egg like in ice ?
