The Science Behind Exploding Spaghetti

By Chris Mills on at

To promote the charmingly named charity auction, “Blowing Sh*t Up With Arnold”, US science personality Bill Nye took to YouTube to explain the science behind explosives. In particular, what powered Schwarzenegger’s last YouTube video in which he blew things up.

If the video, and all its talk of shear stress and thermal capacity, has piqued your interest, you can enter the charity auction yourself for a chance to go explode things with Arnold in Los Angeles.
