Kaboom!: Explosions Of All Kinds : Who knew that some animals can create explosions to get food or escape predators? Or that fireworks were once used to fight wars? Believe it or not, explosions are all around us, from the Big Bang that created the universe to the pop of a seed pod, from solar flares to the explosive gases lurking in a coal mine. Many remarkable blasts are a result of human ingenuity - the carving of the faces of four American presidents into a wall of granite on Mount Rushmore, the destruction of a rock to prevent shipwrecks, and the development of asthma inhalers based on a beetle's explosive pulses. Full of fun facts, dramatic images, and highlights of momentous blasts in history, Kaboom! examines an astonishing variety of explosions and the science behind them.
