[edit] Information

Explosive Force What makes an explosion? Of all the worlds’ technologies, few have experienced such a rapid rate of progress as explosives. In just 300 years we have advanced from gunpowder to the atomic bomb. During that time explosive power has increased more than 100,000 times. We travel to the heart of an explosion to understand just what makes an explosive force. We visit top-secret laboratories, and learn how terrorists have usurped the science of explosions to produce crude but deadly home made bombs. And we cast our eye to the future and reveal the reality behind the science-fiction dream of an all-powerful explosion... of antimatter. Around the world there are tens of billions of explosions every second; every time we start an engine or drive a car we rely on them. Without explosives, life as we know it would grind to a shuddering halt.

[edit] Extra:Triumph of the Tank

What is the deadliest tank ever built?
What are tanks and where do they come from? We answer this using the best tank on the planet, the American made Abrams M1A2. This truly is a tank of today. It is fully integrated with computers, state of the art detection and communication systems. It can detect and kill its prey from miles away even in the dead of night. Despite its modern electronic technologies its design is based on ideas developed at the start of the last century - mobility, firepower and armor. These three features must be balanced, too much armor or too big a gun and it will be too heavy to move a round, too little and it will be mobile but vulnerable to enemy fire. We investigate what the design of the Abrams tank has learnt form WW2 tanks like the Russian T34 and how it has become the most deadly tank on the planet. But it still shares all its main features with its relatives of 90 years ago. It is designed on a principle established in WW1- the balance between: Mobility, Armor and Gun.
