Caption: Explosion. Airborne detonation test of an industrial mining explosive. Instruments around the fireball measure its thermal output. Explosives burn rapidly, creating large amounts of gas & heat to cause a sudden increase in pressure. Explosives need to be studied carefully to allow them to be stored and used safely.
