Two thousand years ago Chinese scientists were looking for a medicine that would make them live forever. Instead, they blew up their lab and discovered gunpowder. Alfred Nobel blew up his laboratory twice before he discovered the formula for dynamite. Learn about the Apollo 13 and Challenger explosions, and the strange space explosions caused by top secret Starfish Prime. These stories may sound twisted, but they're all true tales from science
