Binary Explosive

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


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.


Origins:   Research in progress.
