Pouring Water On An Oil Fire Creates A Crazy Mushroom Cloud Fire Explosion

Video: It looks like a mini-nuclear bomb, to be honest. But it’s just the result of pouring water onto an oil fire (don’t ever do that!). In this video by Crash Zone, you can see the liquid fire drip down into the ground and then charge right back up creating a truly epic and fiery mushroom cloud.

This 'Bubble Curtain' Will Protect San Francisco's Marine Life From The Bay Bridge Demolition

One of the largest remaining chunks of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge is coming down tomorrow, as engineers continue to dismantle the ageing piece of infrastructure. But how to protect the fish and other wildlife in the area as it gets taken down? By blowing bubbles.

This Galaxy Cluster Is Home To The Most Powerful Explosion Since The Big Bang

Astronomers have compiled a stunning composite image of an extraordinarily large explosion that’s being powered by one of the largest supermassive black holes known to science.

NASA Releases Harrowing New Photos Of Last Year's Antares Rocket Explosion

A little over a year ago, NASA’s Orbital ATK Antares rocket, with a Cygnus spacecraft onboard, suffered a “catastrophic anomaly” just moments after launch. NASA has now released a stunning new set of previously unseen photos chronicling the disaster.

Spectacular Meteor Explosion Lights Up The Night Sky In A Perfect Alien Blue

Video: Dash cam footage of meteors aren’t particularly special anymore because the Internet has pretty much ruined everything. But this one that was taken in Bangkok the other day is pretty spectacular. The night sky gets completely lit up in that perfect hue of blue that we associate with aliens and then fades away as the fireball burns out like nothing ever happened.

Blowing Up A Pool With Firecrackers Is Definitely The Awesomest Thing

Video: Have an outdoor pool that you don’t want to drain? Need to get rid of the portable pool but don’t want to do any work? There’s a much better and infinitely more fun alternative solution: blow that mother up with firecrackers. It creates an explosion that looks like a mini atom bomb and spreads the water everywhere.

Previously Unreleased Footage Of 1955 Atomic Bomb Testing, In Glorious HD

Atom Central recently published these four unreleased videos of atomic bomb testing in 1955. The footage, taken from Operation Teapot at the test site in Nevada, is in glorious HD so it’s pretty incredible but watch out for the blinding light. Even in a small little YouTube window, it hurts.

US And South Korea's Biggest Live Fire Drill Ever Was Madness

There are so many things going on in this year’s US and South Korea’s live fire exercise that it’s hard to remember what you’re seeing because each drill just keeps raising the ante over the previous one. All I know is that there were a ton of tanks, helicopters that filled the sky, planes that scorched flybys, and so many explosions that ripped up the Earth.

A Bomb Of Matchstick Heads Exploding In Slow Motion Is Like Fire Rain

What happens when you light 6000 matchstick heads (that is only the tip of the match)? Basically a huge fire bomb explosion that looks like it’s raining fire. The match heads all ignite and burst a super tall flame in the air and then the match heads start flying everywhere and when it falls to the ground, it looks like individual flames are burning down. So cool.

Why Do We Use A Dumbass Unit To Measure Explosions?

There’s been some confusion over the size of today’s explosion in China’s Tianjin province, with some people mistakenly thinking it was the largest non-nuclear explosion of all time. It was not — that honour goes to the Russians — and you can partly blame our stupid system of measurement for the mistake.
