In light of the recent filament of solar material that erupted into space recently, we decided to explore explosions in closer detail.

Explosions are serious, despite the often majestic nature of the photographs documenting them. They can occur naturally (volcanoes, bushfires), chemically, astronomically, electrically, mechanically, or they can be man-made (nuclear). The bottom line is that they're devastating, so while we don't delight in or encourage the destruction that ensues, we can appreciate the beauty of the photographs that capture them.
