Fragment tracking—insights into what happens in explosions

A bang and a swirl of dust from detonating 9 pounds of plastic explosive in the desert signaled the beginning of tests that—thanks to advances in high-speed cameras, imaging techniques and computer modeling—will help Sandia National Laboratories researchers study fragmenting explosives in ways that weren't possible before.
