Claim:   Video clip shows the manufacture and detonation of a home-made “binary explosive.”


UNDETERMINED


Examples:   [Collected via e-mail, January 2010]


The attached video purports to show the kitchen-table
manufacture and then the detonation of a ‘binary explosive”,
wherein a dot of the substance the size of a match head vaporizes
a watermelon! I’m pretty sure nothing short of an (impossibly )
scaled-down thermonuclear device would have close to this capability.
