Mythbusters ‘Big Bang’ Shatters Windows

YOLO COUNTY, Calif. — A big explosion, in the name of science, scared a lot of people in a small town.

Mythbusters went to Yolo County and ended up with a bigger bang than expected.

* * *

They were trying to literally “knock the socks off” a mannequin by igniting 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate. But the explosion was a lot bigger than they expected.

“It felt like a house blew up, straight up,” said Paul Williams.

500 pounds of ammonium nitrate? That’d be worth seeing. Wonder when there’ll be video available?

And yeah, I would think that Mythbusters alone would be able to supply a lot of material for The Explosions Channel.
