How do you demolish a massive building – in the middle of a populated city – in a matter of seconds… safely? Counterintuitively, you do it with explosives. We explore how chemistry, engineering, and more than a little artistry come together to safely bring down massive structures. #implosion #controlledDemolition #dynamite #nitroglycerine You might also like: Science of Concrete & the Surfside Condo Collapse: 🤍youtu.be/4Nr3w1BQE18 Is Premium Gas Really Different From Regular? 🤍youtu.be/-R39-Tx2808 How Can Fertilizer Explode? 🤍youtu.be/-SeT3N3A19c Are We Standing on a Quadrillion Tons of Diamonds? 🤍youtu.be/JB-dOm2k6NY Bomb Sniffing Military Dog vs. Machine (and Sam): 🤍youtu.be/TRwqOFHOjac Credits: Executive Producers: Hilary Hudson Producers: Elaine Seward Andrew Sobey Darren Weaver Writer/Host: George Zaidan Scientific consultants: Michelle Boucher, PhD Brent Blanchard Jacqueline Akhavan, PhD Brianne Raccor, PhD Executive in Charge for PBS: Maribel Lopez Associate Director of Programming for PBS: Niki Walker Reactions is a production of the American Chemical Society. © 2022 American Chemical Society.

how did i get here
Very good subject. Level of detail is great. Do more.
Really well explained. Thanks, ACS!
And it is safe to eat meat with dynamite?
And how recyclable is demolition? I saw a video of japanese taking down a building floor by floor for recycling
Simple answer. They ask russian army.
That was a blast!
Very good video! Can we get a part 2 explaining some big explosions? Or looking into some highly explosive chemicals?
Great video, but something went wrong with the subtitles around 2llozOn6xec&t=2m50s 2:50 , they don't update for a long while, then skips ahead in the script at around 2llozOn6xec&t=4m35s 4:35 and gets stuck on that until it syncs back up at around 2llozOn6xec&t=4m55s 4:55 . Just wanted to let you know to help people who have audio processing issues (like myself) or hard of hearing.
Thought this was gonna be about Tower 7.
This was awesome. 💥
Congratulations on your french accent.
Yay, it's back! I can't tell what changed from when it was titled "The Art of Blowing Stuff Up" ( o2Dx1_mdsiY ). The sources document is still locked, though :)
This was acualy very well explained. As hopefully future teacher this is a type of fun knowledge i might use later in my lectures.
How much dynamite do I need to take a 150m² house down?
Where can I buy it?
would it work with home made material?
Please answer quickly!
I need it for a friend who is doing a research for his friend!
Great video guys
