What Is Different About This Explosion?
What is missing is the flame. Clearly there is a sizable blast originating somewhere near the back seat. But there is no flash and no fire. The car is blown open by pressure. So what is happening? This explosion was a demonstration of what bomb …

Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Entertainment, has taken the phase here in Dana Point, California for this year’s D: Dive Into Media, speaking candidly about his attire’s use of social networks to advertise, and more significantly, how modern-day innovation is impacting significant modification on the creative side of things. Pointing out shows like Sons of Anarchy, Mad Men and Breaking Bad– ones that he’s undoubtedly a fan of– he noted that the proliferation of DVR modern technology has allowed a great deal of it.
“I personally think that this explosion in creativity you’re seeing today is because of the reality that you could create 13 episode, long-form narratives then enjoy it whenever you want. It even brings much better directors and authors who do not think that they can inform their stories in the two-hour frame of a significant movement picture. I think this is a direct result of technology. It’s the first time I’ve seen it– there was constantly speak about exactly how technology would impact innovative, and this is it. “

Meet Ricardo Fuentes of Mexico City. Ricardo recently pulled several of his coworkers to safety after a methane explosion at the state-run Pemex oil headquarters killed 37 others. When reached for comment why he was unable to save more lives, Ricardo had this to say, “I’m not the f***ing Flash.” But seriously, a moment of silence for those who weren’t so lucky. Per Google translated webpage:
Just when I was helping these people I was photographed. Resembling the character was no coincidence, as a teenager I liked the character from the comics.
“All my friends call me Logan, since I was in high school, this up here (his hair) I comb my hair back and leave alone, then I laugh at these situations in the office because I said that it seems I have horns head and I reply that my hair well so they do not see me, “he laughs.
But Ricardo believes that comparisons are unnecessary when a coincidence put several factors at a site.
“It’s not because I’ve got to find fame, then demanded it, was what was needed and the guy who took the picture could be or could not be and the same would have gone unnoticed, was a series of coincidences which are giving “.
There’s the picture of Wolverine caught post-rescue after the jump. Say, you think if I dressed like Wolverine and did my hair like him everyday I could convince my friends to call me Logan? “Do they like you?” No. “Then probably not.” What about Wolvie? “Doubt it.” But I’m tiiiiired of being Farts McCloud.
Hit the jump for the shot of Wolverine in action.
Seen here after things took a turn for the worse (worst?), NASA’s new Morpheus Lander ends its life on a test launchpad. Things start off smooth enough (it rises), however then it falls on its side and catches fire. Worthwhile explosion at 1:52 and 2:12. Some even more info so you can thrill a date and, I dunno, possibly score a kiss:
As streamed live by NASA, on 8/9/2012 at the Kennedy Area Center, the Project Morpheus lander attempted its very first free-flight examination. Nevertheless shortly into the test a hardware component failing triggered the craft to flip over and crash down in flames, followed by a number of explosions.
Project Morpheus is a prototype “green” lander that is relatively inexpensive and more fuel reliable than previous lander designs. Project Morpheus has actually cost $ 7 million over 2.5 years, economical for a NASA project, due to “lean development” practices.
Listen NASA, I’m all for doing things cheaply, however if your brand-new, cheap lunar landers just crash and explode they resemble, not that really good of a package, you know? Picture you’re at Finest Buy and they’re offering 55″ flatscreens for $ 150. You buy one, however when you get it home, it doesn’t switch on. Now exactly how really good of a deal was it? Food for idea.
Hit the jump for the sadness. Boom-booms at 1:52 and 2:12.

This is a shot of a nuclear explosion less than a millisecond after detonation, taken making use of a magical camera equipment. Well, it’s not actually magic, I just don’t comprehend how it works so that MAKES it magic. Same selects magnets and microwaves. It’s all little wizards as far as I’m worried. \* banging on microwave \* WAKE UP– WAKE UP AND DO YOUR LITTLE SPELLS ON MY HOT POCKET.
It was captured less than 1 millisecond after the detonation utilizing a rapatronic video camera, which is capable of exposure times as quick as 10 nanoseconds (one nanosecond is one billionth of a second). The photograph was shot from roughly 7 miles away during the Tumbler-Snapper tests in Nevada (1952). The fireball is approximately 20 meters in diameter, and 3 times hotter than the area of the sunshine.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? “Yeah– WHY THE F \* CK DOES IT HAVE LEGS?” Right ?! I loathe to holler government conspiracy, however I simply did and now everybody at Starbucks is staring at me. YOU ‘RE ALL SHEEP, YOU HEAR ME– SHEEP! Additionally, did a person die in the bathroom? Because I’m about to piss myself. “Resembles you did already.” \* looking down \* That’s from earlier– it’s virtually dry.
Thanks to Darkmorcel, that agrees an image of a nuclear explosion a 2nd BEFORE detonation is merely an image of a nuclear bomb. The even more you recognize.

Question by : What is the probability that a fully functional universe happened from an explosion?
What is the statistical probability that the universe and laws of physics just happened?
The more I study the laws of physics, particle physics and astronomy the more I am in awe of how everything in the universe is so precisely tuned.
Isn’t it amazing how gravity and nuclear fusion are precisely tuned to create a star? How electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, and gluon formed to create matter.The strong force, weak force, gravity and magnetism all work in harmony. The fact that light photons exists. Atoms got together to form an organic material that formed a brain that led to consciousness. I could go on and on.
I find it astonishing that none of these things existed, then an explosion and you got a fully functioning universe.
This isn’t a God or bible question. But a statistical question of the probability that everything happened just so, to create a functioning universe from a big bang/explosion?
Is there a greater probability of some sort of intelligent design?

The welfare of Chinese workers is back in the spotlight after an explosion at Shanghai-based Riteng Computer Accessory Company left 23 people in hospital with burns and another 34 with more minor injuries. Local government officials said the explosion happened on Saturday afternoon at a workshop on the fourth floor of the facility. Riteng is a subsidiary supplier to Pegatron Corp and the Chinese newspaper Yi Cai Daily reported it was in the middle of trial production of aluminum iPad 2 back panels. A separate explosion at a Foxconn factory back in Spring was attributed to poor extraction of combustible aluminum dust.

UPDATED – What appears to be a fire or explosion engulfed one of the buildings at the Foxconn Factory in Chengdu, China. Foxconn is reporting two casualties and 16 hurt and the damage does look severe and quite thorough. MICGadget reported that “10 fire engines, ambulances and 10 police cars” arrived on the scene. Reports state that a few floors in Building A5 (apparently part of the iPad 2 production line) were affected and that the explosion was caused by light dust igniting in one of the manufacturing rooms.
What could have happened? Well, as we learned from the Mythbusters, any aerated, flammable substance can potentially explode given the right mix of heat and propellant. The resulting explosions, especially in a factory that is probably producing clouds of aluminium and plastic dust on a daily basis, could be quite dangerous.
As of 21:00 Chengdu time, six men and one woman were sent to the Sichuan Provincial People’s Hospital. There were two fatalities and injuries to 16 others.
Foxconn released an official statement on the accident:
We can confirm that at approximately 7 pm on May 20, there was an explosion at our Chengdu campus. At this point, we can also confirm that there were two fatalities with injuries to 16 other employees. We are working with medical officials to provide treatment to the injured employees and we are working with government and law enforcement officials to contact the families of all employees affected by this tragedy.
The situation has been brought under control by the fire department and the cause of this explosion is being investigated by local police officials. Foxconn is cooperating fully with that investigation.
Production has been suspended at the site of the explosion until the completion of the investigation. The safety of our employees is our highest priority and we will do whatever is required to determine and address the cause of this tragic accident.
