Caption: Explosion. Airborne detonation test of nitro- methane, an experimental mining explosive. Instruments around the fireball measure its thermal output. Explosives burn rapidly, creating large amounts of gas and heat to cause a sudden increase in pressure. Explosives need to be studied carefully to allow them to be stored and used safely. Photographed during research conducted by the Health and Safety Laboratory, Britain.
