Caption: As an individual piece of spaghetti is broken, the spaghetti fractures into several pieces that fly off. This breaking pattern is often called the smokestack problem, because it is also exhibited by smokestacks under demolition. Scientists are currently investigating the compressive and tension forces underlying the pattern. Image captured with a 1/20,000th of a second flash.
